The Olympic Stadium was originally built for the Great Exhibition of 1929, with the idea that Barcelona would then host the 1936 Olympics (ultimately staged in Berlin). After failing twice to win the nomination, Barcelona celebrated the attainment of its long-cherished goal by renovating the semiderelict stadium in time for 1992, providing seating for 70,000.

 

Not far from this, actually just next door is the futuristic Palau Sant Jordi Sports Palace, designed by the Japanese architect Arata Isozaki. The building has been constructed so that

 

no pillars, beams or any other form of "view obstruction" It was built from the roof down - the roof was built first, then hydraulically lifted into place.

 

Open 10-2 and 4-7, Weekends 10-6.

 

Barcelona has always been a city that lives and breathes sport. Today, and thanks in large part to the holding of the Olympic Games back in 1992, a major part of the population

 

regularly ingage in some type of sport. The people of Barcelona have seized the city's public spaces, squares, parks and new beaches and turned them into focal points of sports activities.  The City Council promotes and stimulates sport at all levels - from amateur to professional, from school to retirement, from 'fun runs' to summer activities - building and remodelling facilities, equipping districts and educational centres. Facilitating access for everyone to a healthier lifestyle through physical exercise. Consolidating Barcelona's international role as a city of Sport.
