The anecdote

The Spanish Village was built to last six months, that is, the duration of the Exhibition for which it was built. After the end of the Exhibition the idea was to demolish it but it was so successful that it has reached our days and is one of the main tourist attractions in Barcelona.

The promoter of the Poble Espanyol

The idea of ​​the construction of the Poble Espanyol was the famous modernist architect Josep Puig i Cadafalch, designer of one of the most famous buildings of Catalan modernism, Casa Amatller. However, the project was carried out by the architects Francesc Folguera and Ramon Reventós, and the artists Xavier Nogués and Miquel Utrillo, who traveled all over the country to take photographs, write notes and make drawings. With all the material they collected, they designed the site and all the buildings.
