Poble Espanyol working hours

by manuna

The official site gives a contradictoty information.
Working hours:
Friday: 9 a.m. to 4 a.m.
Saturday: 9 a.m. to 5 a.m.
Sunday: 9 a.m. to 12 a.m.
Craftshops and shops
Summer: 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Does it mean that those houses that work as a museum are closed and all other are open?

Re: Poble Espanyol working hours

by puerto_lover

The official site http://www.poble-espanyol.com says as below. The Craftshops & Shops have different opening hours to the overall 'village'. I suppose like any 'village' the shops open and close for business - the shopkeepers go home to their families :

OPENING HOURS

Monday: 9 a.m. to 8 p.m.
From Tuesday to Thursday: 9 a.m. to 2 a.m.
Friday: 9 a.m. to 4 a.m.
Saturday: 9 a.m. to 5 a.m.
Sunday: 9 a.m. to 12 a.m.

Christmas time

24th December: 9 a.m. to 8 p.m.
25th December: 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
1st january: 1 p.m. to 8 p.m.

From January, 12th to February, 8th, Monday to Thursday, the Poble will be closed at 8 p.m.

CRAFTSHOPS AND SHOPS

Winter: 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Summer: 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Autumn and spring: 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.

yes the 'village' has also restaurants, bars and a nightclub (hence the opening hours until very late).
The shops have the same working hours as most shops in town. There is not really a museum, even there are some exhibits. None of the houses is "open" for you to visit, these are fake houses with nothing inside except the shops (or other business).

Now I realise that I didn't get it right! I couldn't realize that it can be a.m. and I couldn't understand why they are closed so early! Now, it's all clear.

Sundays after 8pm its FREE! Pretty much everything inside is closed, although there are a few places open, but we found it very nice to wander around as the sun set with practically nobody around. We have beautiful photos of all of Poble Espanyol with no crowds anywhere.

Travel Tips for Barcelona

Barcelona's lovely parks

by karenincalifornia

One thing that makes Barcelona such a beautiful city is the large number of parks. The Parc de la Ciutadella is a very beautiful and well-tended park near the old city and next to the zoo. The fortress type building in this picture is the Zoological Museum, which we did not have time to visit. Put that one down on the list for the next trip to Barcelona!

Catalan/Castillano

by blint

Many will tell you (mainly the Catalans) that Catlalunya (Barcelona being the Capital city) is a separate country to Spain. They are very proud of their language and have great food. Apart from this, why is it that Catalans feel so proud of their 'nation'? well it is largely because under the dictator Franco, who ruled Spain until the 1970's, they couldn't even speak their own language and were pretty much repressed. To this day most Catalans feel very defensive about this topic and you should tread carefully if you wish to talk to people about it. I found people were only too willing to talk to me about it if asked in the right way.

The problem here is not so great as in Pais vasco, but when I left Barcelona for Castilla I did feel like I was entering into enemy territory after hearing too many negative comments towards the rest of Spain. Though not all Catalans feel this way, especially not the younger ones. Of course the ones who were suppressed by Franco are going to have stronger feelings on the topic.

In fact the rest of Spain then begin to recent Catalunya as they say during Franco's time he put lots of money into the area to build up Barcelona and it's port and that it is unfair that, if they want to go to university in Barcelona they have to speak Catalan as that is the language in which the classes are given. Many have expressed the same concerns about getting a job there.

I am not taking sides here I'm just putting forward the views expressed to me by both sides.

I very much liken the situation here to that of Scotland in the UK.

Don't forget the sunscreen

by hevbell

SUNSCREEN. Do not forget the sunscreen! I got a nice burn on my arms & face and had to go out and purchase some After Sun and a hat to compensate. So wish I hadn't forgotten to pack it!! There is so much to see in Barcelona that you are bound to take loads of photos so make sure you have plenty of film or memory cards. I got an extra memory card before I left and was very glad I did

The Foster Tower / Collserola Tower

by nancyread

You can see the Foster Tower (the British architect, Norman Foster designed it) from virtually everywhere in Barcelona. Simply look inland (which is usually uphill) and raise your eyes to the left of Tibidabo and there it is - an elegant telecommunications tower soaring skyward. If you are going to visit Tibidabo you might as well visit the tower (there is a 360 degree enclosed viewing deck about one third of the way up). Just walk down the slip road next to the funicular down to the main road and strike off towards the tower. There is a lift [price to be inserted] up to the viewing platform. Worth a half-hour visit, perhaps combined with a trot along one of the woodland tracks (see my "Collserola Park" tip).

Best shopping place in Barcelona

by codrutz about Diagonal Mar

I found the best department store of Barcelona to be Diagonal Mar, located off-center, in the east end of the Av. Diagonal. It has all a real shopper wants :) And that included a good meal after the walk and shop :) Clothes, shoes, electronic and household items (I spent over two hours looking at some photo equipment), music .. all in one big department store. I found here shops that sell own names, like C&A, with very nice prices. You can't shop from another place :) Diagonal Mar it's simply the best shopping place in Barcelona.
