Built in 1929 for the Universal Exhibition in Barcelona, it was designed by the architect Puig i Cadafalch.
It currently houses a total of 117 scale models of buildings representing 15 different Spanish regions and covers a surface area of 42,000 square metres. It is considered to be a unique space in the city; a real village with streets, squares and buildings that can transport us from a church in Aragón to a neighborhood in Andalucía, all mixed together in one enclosure.
Since 1997, it has also housed 40 workshops, where artisans specialising in jewelry, glass, masks, embroidery, puppets, leather, ceramics, etc., all offer unique handcrafted pieces. For this reason, the Catalan government declared it an ‘Area of Craft Interest’.
It also has several bars, restaurants and clubs.
