Undoubtedly one of the most surprising locations in Poble Espanyol and the most majestic and solemn. It’s made up of the Noble Hall, a reproduction of the Palace of the Autonomous Government of Valencia and by two Renaissance porches, replicated from Valderrobres Town Hall (Aragon). The hall is perfect for receptions, banquets, meetings, film shoots or presentations.

Baluard and Sculpture Garden

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 Bulwark 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.

Guinovart Space

Surprising and versatile. That’s the Guinovart Space, a circular building presided over by a giant sculpture of the renowned artist Josep Guinovart. Made up of different floors and with natural light that enters from a large skylight, it’s a fantastic location for aperitifs, cocktails and exhibitions.

Our spaces are prepared for team building events in Barcelona

The Poble Espanyol itself is a very suitable place for teambuilding events; a broad venue of 49.000m2 outdoors, where every corner surprises the visitor, emerging themselves to play games, solve enigmas and other proposals. Even more, in the entirety of the Poble Espanyol we have to our disposition determined locations that may also be used in an independent manner for developing a wide range of team building events.

The open spaces outdoors, for example, offers a whole range of possibilities. The best known and characteristic is the Plaza Mayor, with an area of more than e 2.000 m2 and the capacity to hold thousands of guests, depending on the hosted activity. Smaller but more charming places are the Green Areas. For example, the Jardín de las Esculturas (Garden of Sculptures), next to the Plaça Baluard, of almost 600 m2, with the capacity for hundreds of people, or the exterior area of the Monastery of Sant Miquel, since from here guests can enjoy the fascinating view of the city. The picnic area, next to the carp, is also a beautiful woodland where team building events can be held in Barcelona.

In case you prefer covered spaces, the options are also very diverse. The spacious Ayuntamiento (Townhall) is the main building of the Plaza Mayor and it holds a huge Noble Hall of almost 220 m2, diaphanous and transformable into an auditorium, dance-hall, and even a room for lunches and dinners. Due to the above-mentioned, it is indeed the perfect place for gathering the members of your team around a round table after the programmed activities. Its maximum capacity is of 300 people. The theatre is another one of the spaces most frequently chosen by our clients, in this case for activities that require a stage and chairs. The crap and the monastery, above mentioned, are the covered space options that we make available to our clients, as we do with the great kitchen Cookiteca and the Guinovart Space, where contemporary art has an undeniable protagonism.
