The Barcelona Olympic Park, which is located on Montjuc Mountain, houses the athletic arenas as well as structures like the Palau Sant Jordi and the Telecommunications Tower. The centrepiece of all the facilities is the Olympic Stadium, or Estadi Olmpic Llus Companys in Catalan in honour of the late president of the Government of Catalonia.

It's a great place to visit for people of all ages since it contains interactive parts for kids and portions that talk about sports that older people can look back on and recall.

Things to do at the Olympic Park:

  • Olympic Stadium helps get hold of the sporting spectacle:

In order to host the 1992 Summer Olympics, the stadium underwent a thorough refurbishment while maintaining its original outward architecture. Since then, the 60,000-seat stadium has played home to a number of athletic events, including the European Athletics Championships. The Rolling Stones, Michael Jackson, AC/DC, Beyonce, Madonna, and David Bowie are just a handful of the famous performers that have performed there.

  • Watch the calatrava-designed communications tower up, close and personal:

The Torre Calatrava, also known as the Montjuc Communications Tower is a massive structure that has what seems to be the white, curved shape of an athlete holding the Olympic flame. The 136-meter-tall tower's base is covered in trencads, or pieces of shattered tile, as a tribute to architect Antoni Gaud. This structure has evolved into a recognisable feature of Montjuc and the Barcelona skyline.

  • Visit Spain's Sant Jordi Palace:

The Palau Sant Jordi, often known as St. George's Palace in English, is another outstanding aspect of Olympic Park. The indoor sports complex was designed by Japanese architect Arata Isozaki, and it served as the Olympic volleyball, handball, and gymnastics site. It is now used for a variety of indoor sporting events, including as the IAAF World Indoor Athletics Championships, Davis Cup tennis matches, and the World Men's Handball Championship.

  • Bert Picornell's swimming facilities:

After being inaugurated in 1970 to honour the 12th European Aquatics Championships, the Summer Olympic Games in 1992 were later reconstructed in preparation for the Olympic Games in 1992. The pools were built by architects Antonio Lozoya and Joan Ricart and are named for Catalan swimming pioneer and champion Bernat Picornell I Richier. The nicest aspect of these pools is the spectacular, all-encompassing vistas of Barcelona. The images of the divers with the Sagrada Familia in the background are some of the most recognisable and memorable ones from the Games.

  • Learn about the history of the Olympics and about international and Catalan sports history, you must visit the Olympic Museum:

Every aspect of sport is covered at the museum, including high-performance competitive sports, leisure pursuits, and sport for people with disabilities.n It offers a comprehensive view of all sports, traces their historical evolution, and emphasises the Olympic movement and its guiding ideals.

  • Come to Plaza Palace of Europee at dusk to take in Barcelona's magnificent skyline extending into the Mediterranean:

The Plaça d'Europa, which gives amazing views of the whole city, is where you'll spend the bulk of your time when you first arrive at the Olympic Park.
