Pueblo Español in Palma
The village in the city: Pueblo Español open air museum in Palma
In the west of Palma de Mallorca, near the Castell de Bellver, there is the Nuevo Pueblo Español, a village in the city. It is a well-known open-air museum that combines almost all Spanish architectural styles behind its walls. A visit is highly recommended!
The Nuevo Pueblo Español in the Son Españolet district is much more than just a medieval village. The architect Fernando Chueca Goitia has achieved what he set out to do in the 1960s: in an open-air museum, unite the various architectural facets of the entire Spanish kingdom. From 1965 to 1967, the special open-air museum was created on a total of 26,000 square meters.
Architectural styles from all over Spain
Those who go behind the walls that protect the museum find themselves in a typical Spanish village that combines numerous styles. Here you can marvel at the perfect architecture that draws the multitudes of tourists from all over the world to the Spanish villages and cities.
Many architectural details can be seen on a leisurely tour of the cobblestones. Even more impressive is the tour with an expert guide who can tell a lot about the architecture and sharpens the eye for the inconspicuous. For example, elements from Barcelona, ??Seville, Madrid and Alhambra have been modeled here.
Pueblo Español in Palma – museum and venue behind thick walls
The Pueblo Español (German Spanish village) is today much more than just a museum. Conferences, meetings and many other events take place here. In December, a small but fine Christmas market in the alleys of the museum village enchants. In some houses there are shops and restaurants, others are empty.
In summer the museum is open daily from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. If you are a little interested in architecture, you can easily spend two to three exciting hours here. Entry costs six euros.
