Barcelona – Poble Espanyol

View from Poble Espanyol

Last destination of the 3rd day of the Trip in Barcelona, we take a cable car up to the highest point of Poble Espanyol, on the mountain of Montjuïc, Barcelona. From here you can experience the beautiful landscape of Port of Barcelona and also the view of the whole City of Barcelona.

The Poble Espanyol is an outdoor open-air architectural museum located on the mountain of Montjuïc in the city of Barcelona, Spain. It was constructed in 1929 for the Barcelona International Exhibition that was held in Barcelona that year. Josep Puig i Cadafalch was the one who had the idea for the museum: a town in which the architecture, style, and culture of various locations from all around Spain were all preserved in a single place. The aim was to give an idea of what might be an “ideal model” of a Spanish village containing the main characteristics of all towns and villages in the peninsula. For this reason, 117 buildings, streets and squares were reproduced to scale. Pieces were selected taking into account criteria of aesthetic fit that could help create a harmonious overall composition in accordance with the “village” design that had been conceived.

About the picture above, it’s a panorama shot merged from 3 horizontal shots. Shots were captured by 30s shutter speed.
