If you are looking for the rent of an open-air space in Barcelona, Poble Espanyol is an option that will interest you. In our precinct we offer you various venues at the open-air in which you can organise every type of events: from multitudinous concerts to small performances, more intimate, or cultural festivals, weddings, magic shows, theatre plays and lots more. In these lines we tell you what these venues are, with the Main Square as a main reference but which also include gardens and other pleasant areas.

Very near the Monastery of Sant Miquel there are two venues where nature and art blend harmoniously thanks to the presence of various sculptures by 20th-centry Spanish artists. Both Baluard Square and the Sculpture Garden provide spectacular views of Barcelona. The two open-air venues are an incomparable setting for small-format concerts and cocktail parties, among other possibilities.

The Main Square

The Main Square is the great meeting point of Poble Espanyol. Like in the Greek agora, the roman forums or, simply, in the Spanish squares. Indeed, our Main Square is inspired by the Riaza’s one, in Segovia, and serves as an incomparable framework for multitudinous concerts and events.

The Poble Espanyol’s venue with the higher capacity: until 5,200 people standing and 1,800 sitting in an auditorium format. In total, 2,043 m2, enough for a big stage, usually located in front of the main building which reproduces the façade of Valderrobres’ Town Hall, in Aragon, and a large dancing area in front of it. Curiously, in addition of being an open-air space, it also can be covered, since from October to March, a large and beautiful transparent and diaphanous marquee is installed.

Gardens for the rent of an open-air space in Barcelona

If what you are really looking for is a peaceful and charming green area, the Poble Espanyol’s gardens are the solution of your research. For example, the Sculpture Garden, around the Baluard Square. It is a large area with gentle slopes, with wonderful sculptures of contemporary art, created by 27 artists of our time. In some of its corners, Barcelona’s city appears as a beautiful backdrop in the horizon.

Even if, for stunning views, you have the balcony’s ones of the Romanesque Monastery of Sant Miquel nearby. From this venue, with more regular and open outlines, you have a panoramic view of the city, enjoying the height of the mountain of Montuïc. In this area, banquet tables, standing tables for cocktail and other elements can be installed, for a maximum capacity of 150 people. In the opposite side of the monastery, another open garden, in this case for a maximum of 200 people in a cocktail format. The other open-air space of the monastery is its Romanesque cloister, which is usually reserved together with the Annex Room, which is covered.

Finally, the Green area next to the marquee is the other proposal of Poble Espanyol for those who are interested in the rent of an open-air venue in Barcelona. Usually used as a picnic area for the visitors of our precinct, it can be privately reserved as a complement to the marquee or as an independent venue. A forested area which offers shade throughout the year at any hour of the day.

Advantages of our open-air venues rent in Barcelona

The Poble Espanyol’s open-air options combine the positive aspects of the large open-air venues and of the privacy of the precinct: the inside area of Poble Espanyol is totally closed to car traffic, with benefits of security it provides to the users, especially for children. And even if the precinct has a principal entrance, some of our venues have their own access from the outside, which implies more privacy and comfort. It is the case, for example, of the Monastery of Sant Miquel or the marquee.

Another strength of our open areas rent is the complementary services that Poble Espanyol offers: cleaning staff, security staff, coordination and reception service, etc. In addition, our precinct does not work exclusively with any supplier, so you will have all flexibility when hiring.

Our timetable is also interesting: we are open all year round! In addition, the schedules of the venues for rent are independent of the schedules of the precinct, so we can fully adapt to your needs.

Finally, the access by public and collective transport is another positive point of our venues. You can get here by metro or by FGC (train) to Pl. Espanya, by urban bus (13, 23 and 150), tourist buses and, of course, by taxi or private vehicle. Also note that there is a parking for cars and motorcycles or buses, right behind Poble Espanyol.
