Barcelona V :: Poble Espanyol. La Rambla ::

The weather has treated us really good the entire stays in Barcelona at the end of the Summer, which I am really gladful up until now. At one of the midday, we visited Spanish Village - Poble Espanyol. A spacious, open-air architectural museum where you can freely wander around as you would like in a village and simultaneously enjoy the variety of Spanish architecture, tastefully handcrafted goods and gourmet food.

Not many tourists seem to keen in visiting as I thought so in the rather quiet area of Barcelona, so it was pretty peaceful made it a nice place to walk during our visit. The pebbled pathways, the stairs, the shops, and everything are well-made. We enjoyed strolling around this village with its examples of various Spanish architecture, and the shops with regional produce - often handmade goods. 

However, the entrance fee is a bit pricey for what has offers on a tight budget, not to mention the goods are overpriced yet tastefully.

Interesting place to visit, but not a-must.

After a couple of hours spent in Poble Espanyol, we took tube to La Rambla and explored even further. One block, to the other blocks. A pathway connected to another, another, and another. :p

My lovely Kayla! :p

Now we have reached the end of my stay in Barcelona, and the end of my updates on hotspots I have visited.

Bye bye!
