  • Interesting little place and well kept. Not sure why I want to see all the other bits of Spain when I'm here to see catalana but novel idea.
  • I was very disappointed honestly. They charge an entrance fee, but there's only shops and restaurants inside the buildings. I would have liked to see authentic furniture or decorations inside. Also would have been nicer to have staff dress like each region. The layout and which region the house was from wasn't really clear for me, even with the map. Also, there's many places to choose from to eat, but we are at this little place called El roco del roco and the food was amazing (paella + potato omelette). The lady serving and making the food was extremely nice and even let us take away our Sangria + leftovers.
  • Mostly a tourist trap as other comments said. I did like the gardens though and the shops. Although pricey, the glass ones are quite unique. Feels a bit like an entrance fee to a well designed mall unfortunately.
  • This is definitely a 'touristy' venue. It's a replica of Spanish architecture from around the country. We were there at the height of tourist season and it wasn't very busy. There are a number of shops with local artisanal work, which are very nice. The staff at the entrance were very nice. Just keep in mind that this is definitely a tourist venue and less 'authentic' than it may appear from some online descriptions.
  • El Poble Espanyol in Barcelona is a neat, pretty spot which you should consider when visiting the city. It puts on display crafts from the different Spanish regions, such as Andalucía, Aragón, etc. It also houses a couple of excellent restaurants with excellent food at very affordable prices.
