Fodor's Review

Created for the 1929 International Exhibition, the Spanish Village is a sort of open-air architectural museum, with faithful replicas to scale of building styles, from an Aragonese Gothic-Mudejar bell tower to the tower walls of Avila, drawn from all over Spain; the ground-floor spaces are devoted to boutiques, cafés and restaurants, workshops, and studios. The liveliest time to come is at night, and a reservation at one of the half-dozen restaurants gets you in for free, as does the purchase of a ticket for either of the two discos or the Tablao del Carmen flamenco club.
