Poble Espanyol has planned activities especially devised for foreign pupils, with the twin aim of them having a good time in the precinct with no traffic and in the open air, and discovering first-hand aspects related to Spanish culture.
In the precinct, foreign teachers and pupils will find an interesting activity and will also be able to freely discover a whole town and have the chance to have lunch in a peaceful atmosphere. It’s undoubtedly a complete experience that’s an excellent addition to the visit pupils normally make to the mountain of Montjuïc (Magic Fountain, Plaza Espanya, MNAC, panoramic views, etc.).
The highly diverse ideas we offer these students base their content on the mainstays of Poble Espanyol - architecture, handicrafts, art and also gastronomy.
Open visit: A tour of the whole precinct during the times you want, discovering its architectural and cultural value. Visiting the Fran Daurel Museum is especially interesting and includes over 300 works by top exponents of contemporary Spanish art (Picasso, Dalí, Miró, etc.). A visit to the glass furnace, one of the few left in Spain and where you can watch the artisans of blown glass working live, is also fascinating.
Guided visit: An hour-long visit accompanied by an official guide who provides a historical and architectural explanation of the precinct. Available in English, French, German, Italian, Chinese and Russian. A minimum of 15 people are required for this visit.
