Two proposals for family leisure at the same time
La Calçotada is included with general admission to the Poble Espanyol, an emblematic cultural attraction of the city of Barcelona created in 1929 that includes, in the same outdoor space, contemporary art, architecture, artisan products and traditions from different areas of Spain.
So, during this day all visitors will also be able to take a walk through the streets and squares of the enclosure, visit the Fran Daurel Museum and artisan workshops, dive into the audiovisual installations, and even race down the giant slides in the sculpture garden.
