Have you ever watched artisans in glass, leather, ceramics or jewellery working live? More than 20 artisans ply their trade every day in the Poble Espanyol workshops making unique pieces with their hands. That’s why Poble Espanyol is a shopping venue incomparable in Barcelona and it’s open 365 days a year.

In a space dedicated to architecture, culture and Spanish traditions, you surely can’t miss a good craft exhibition. You can visit about twenty handicrafts in Barcelona workshops at the Poble Espanyol. It actually is the best and biggest craft exhibition of Barcelona and Catalonia, and it includes professionals of different generations who work everyday with their hands.

These artists give life to the Poble Espanyol Barcelona and they make it a place for exchange and encounters, where visitors can discover and buy the most original creations, including custom-made pieces. Just like in village squares, main streets or in the corners of fortified villages. In other words, just like in many of the places recreated in our precinct.

It is because of the unique nature and quality of the works produced that the Autonomous Government of Catalonia declared the Poble Espanyol Barcelona an Area of Craft Interest. It is, without a doubt, one of the best concentration of artisans of Barcelona and of the country, and you can enjoy it while strolling through quiet surroundings with no cars.
