Pictures - Miniature Catalunya Park

 Catalunya en Miniatura - Miniature Catalonia park is the biggest miniature theme park in the world, and the only one in Spain. The location is just 30 minutes drive from the centre of Barcelona.  

How to get to Catalunya en Miniatura



Miniature Catalunya



The Miniature Catalonia park is 30 minutes by car from Barcelona in Torelles de Llobregat and maybe an hour by train, but it's well worth the trip if you like something a little different. The park has an amazing collection of miniature models of buildings and landmarks both from Barcelona and Catalonia. From churchs to models of factories and ports. You can see the whole of Catalonia in one afternoon.

The park has seen better days and there are no models of recent Barcelona landmarks like theTorre Agbar. The model of the Sagrada Familia is more unfinished than the real thing these days, which is quite fun to see.

This model took 13.000 hours of work by 6 model builders.

That is 4.4 years of 8 hour work days. No wonder the real thing is taking so long

The model of Casa Vicens is easier to appreciate than the real Casa Vicens by Gaudi which is on the tiny street of Carolinas in Gracia. It was built as country retreat, but is now hemmed in on all sides by the streets and house of Gracia area of Barcelona
