Hiring venues

Would you like to enjoy the rent of a marquee in Barcelona for an event? And if possible, in a symbolic place, with all services and well connected for the comfort of the attendees? So, take a look at Poble Espanyol’s offer, in the mountain of Montjuïc, one of the most prestigious and emblematic place of the city which can receive any type of celebration throughout the year.

The Poble Espanyol’s marquee is one of the most modern and polyvalent elements of all the precinct. It is a recently added structure, and although it does not make part of the original project, it is integrated in a harmonious way into the architectural complex. A current and versatile element in a timeless and historical precinct we offer you to ensure your event is a complete success.

Spacious, airy and versatile, the Marquee reliably performs several functions: banquet and conference hall, film or television set, catwalk, etc.

Right next to the Marquee is the picnic area, an open-air space under large trees that shade the whole area. It’s an ideal area for informal events and also has a private entrance from the outside the precinct.

How is the Poble Espanyol’s marquee

If you choose the rent of our marquee in Barcelona, the attendees will enjoy a large diaphanous space, without interior barriers. It is integrated in an area with trees, which, in addition of the protection of being covered, gives shade and coolness to the environment at any time of the year or of the day. And the air conditioning of the marquee gives an optimum temperature whether in winter or in summer.

The indoor space of the marquee covers 671 m2, a surface large enough to celebrate any type of event. If the attendees settle in an auditorium format, the capacity is of 800 spectators. If they settle around circular tables for a meal or a dinner, the capacity is of 350 people. If they stand as the public of a concert, the capacity rises to 874 people.

You also should note that in the outdoor part of the marquee, there is an open-air area that the visitors of Poble Espanyol usually use as a picnic area. But if you choose to rent this marquee of Barcelona, you can use it as a recreational area, a place to rig complementary stands (merchandising shops, tables of accreditation, etc.) or as a cocktail area.

One of the benefits of this marquee is that, despite of making part of the precinct of Poble Espanyol, it has its own access from the outside. This allows a higher level of exclusivity and privacy: you can celebrate the event without the attendees have to cross all the precinct and without the general ticket visitors can access the marquee area.

Rent of our marquee in Barcelona: for which events?

For being one of the most polyvalent and large spaces of Poble Espanyol, many event organisers choose renting our marquee in Barcelona. Of course, for social celebrations, especially weddings, this venue is ideal for the meal or the banquet dinner, but also for the previous cocktail in the picnic area and for ballroom in the end at the party. Our staff will quickly transform the venue for one or another use. In addition, christenings and communions are another possibility in this way.

On the other hand, the conferences, meetings and master classes are also adapted to the Poble Espanyol’s marquee. Our technical team and/or our trusted suppliers will equip the venue with speakers, microphones, mixer audio channels, Wi-Fi connection, lighting, screen with projectors and any other element you need for this type of event.

In addition, the marquee also stands out for its good acoustics, so it is possible to celebrate concerts inside. Singer-songwriters performances, orchestras or small bands for reduced audiences can take place in this venue, as well as other type of shows, more animated, with the public standing.

How to get to the marquee

The accessibility is a fundamental aspect at the moment of choosing the rent of a marquee in Barcelona. In Poble Espanyol, this is one of our strengths. There are different ways to get here, public transport included: metro and FGC (train) thanks to the Pl. Espanya station, urban buses (13, 23 and 150), tourist transports like the Barcelona City Tour or the Bus Turístic and services always available like taxi or private vehicle. Another advantage is that the access to the marquee is from the Avinguda dels Montanyans, at a few metres from the Plaça del Pare Eusebi Millán, where there is a practice parking for vehicles, motorcycles and buses. This way, if you want to make the attendees arrive through a private collective transport, here you can establish the travellers’ loading and unloading point. This way, they can enter the Poble Espanyol’s marquee easily and in a few minutes.
