Poble Espanyol was supposed to be an ephemeral architectural exhibit for the 1929 International Exhibition in Barcelona, but it became an emblematic place in the city thanks to the success.
It is the dream of any capital: to enjoy the tranquility of a small village. With its 4.5 million inhabitants and 3.200 km2, Barcelona has it: the Poble Espanyol. Just a footstep away from the central Plaza de España and surrounded by the greenness of Montjuïc hill. All Spain in 49,000 m2 and 117 full-size buildings: from the “A” of Avila to the “Z” of Zamora, this museum of Spain’s local architecture recreates in the fresh air and sunshine the country’s allways, squares and gardens.
The Ajuntament is located in the main square of Poble Espanyol. On the outside, the Renaissance arcades of this Aragonese town hall offer an open, but protected, space for drinks and receptions.
Within, the magnificent paneled ceiling and wooden gallery of the great hall of the former Palau de la Generalitat Valenciana create a majestic setting for gala dinners, banquets, exhibitions and all manner of cultural and institutional events.
