Renting of venues for events in Barcelona: our proposals

The main Square is the jewel of our service of renting venues for events in Barcelona. At least, this is the largest space of all our precinct. More than 2,000 m2 at the open-air that can be enjoyed in an optimal way for concerts, festivals, film shootings, gala dinners, conferences, presentations and an entire range of other options. It has a maximum capacity of 5,200 people if the public is standing, and of 1,800 people for a seated auditorium. During autumn and winter, a temporary transparent, diaphanous, covered and air-conditioned structure is deployed, called Hivernacle (greenhouse). In this case, the maximum capacity for concerts is of 4,000 people standing or 1,350 sitting people.

The most symbolic building of the Main Square is the town hall, that can also be reserved independently. This building takes its inspiration, for its indoor part, from the Casa Consistorial de Valderrobres, in Teruel, and for the outdoor one, from the halls of the Palau de la Generalitat Valenciana. Adding the Noble Hall and the Renaissance porches, we provide you more than 510 m2 for all types of celebrations.

The forested and green areas are one of the most demanded option concerning the renting of venues for events in Barcelona, and in Poble Espanyol we have lots for you. The Monastery of Sant Miquel, for example, stands out for the integration of nature. A garden at the entrance, a Romanesque cloister and a balcony in the back complete the indoor venues like the Annex Hall or the chapel. In the case of the balcony, the attractive goes far beyond: there you will enjoy one of the most fantastic panoramic views over Barcelona.

Another large forested venue of Poble Espanyol is the area picnic, which is located next to the modern polyvalent marquee. A perfect tandem to organise concerts, banquets, fashion catwalks, commercial presentations and other lots more.

On the other hand, we have the Sculptural Garden, that can be isolated together with the Baluard Square, located next to it but at a different level. The total of both results in almost 1,000 m2, ideal for weddings and other celebrations.

In our precinct, a theatre could not be missing, with stands equipped with 210 seats. This is the perfect place for cultural shows, but also for corporate events, webinars, presentations and lots more.

We can add two more venues at this variety of spaces: the Cookiteca and the Guinovart Space. The first one is a large and spectacular kitchen of 100 m2 that can be used for cooking shows, gastronomy workshops, events related to the gastronomy sector, etc. The second one is located on the Aragonesa Square and hosts a giant contemporary sculpture of the informalist artist Josep Guinovart.

And if you are organising a large-format event and you need a lot of space… you can reserve the entire Poble Espanyol for your event! This day, we will close the precinct for the public and put it at your disposal.

Why choose us?

There are many reasons why you can choose our service of renting venues for events in Barcelona. Of course, because our precinct has an incomparable charm, like no other place in the city. Indeed, it is an emblematic and historical place, born in the occasion of the International Exhibition of Barcelona in 1929, thanks to the creative genius of the architect Puig i Cadafalch.

Another of the reason is that you can have all the complementary services for the successful organization of the event: cleaning staff, security staff, coordination and reception of the visitors, technical resources at the extent of the activity, etc. And the best for you: we don’t work exclusively with any suppliers, which gives you absolute freedom for the organisation.

On the other hand, even if our precinct is open to the public, there is no problem in privatising the area of the event, so that only the authorized participants will have access to it. In addition, some venues like the marquee or the monastery have their own access from the outside of the precinct.

And, of course, the access facilities are also an additional benefit of Poble Espanyol: urban buses, metro, FGC (train), tourist buses, private buses taxis, cars and even cable car… Without forgetting that it is a traffic-free and calm precinct, near Barcelona centre and, at the same time, at a safe distance from the hustle of the city.
