Barcelona in Miniature

CATALUNYA EN MINIATURA is the biggest touristic and cultural complex in miniature in the world, and the only one in Spain. lt purpose is to let the visitors know the monuments, buildings and the most representative achievements of the Princedom.

It tries to be also a life sample to exteriorize cultural and folk reality in order to let you know them better, and to get closer to its people and peculiarities, and building a stronger friendship with common effort.

170 miniature reproduction models of Catalonia's most important buildings are on display here, including Casa Milà (La Pedrera) and La Sagrada Familia. So, if you haven't got time to see everything for real, this is a great way to capture the essence of Barcelona's architecture in a single day. Come on Sundays and holidays and you'll catch a children's clown festival as well. It's open all year round. To get here, take a Solé i Sauret bus from the intersection of Calle Riera Blanca and Travessera de les Corts.

It also offers our reality to all foreign visitors, since one of our ideals is also to promove tourism from the inside to the outside —as the President of the Generalitat himself has said— an interesting alternative between the many that Catalonia offers to its visitors.
