Large complex that includes the stadium, indoor arena, playing fields, and lots of open space. The stadium itself is impressive and has an interesting history in and of itself. One could imagine what it as like when the Olympics were in town. Stroll the grounds - peaceful and quiet area.

As other contributors have mentioned you are allowed free access to the interior of the stadium which still looks very impressive. I understand that it was home to Espanyol (the other football team in Barcelona) till 2009 - but they have moved out to a smaller new ground - so am unsure as to how often it is now used... More

Beautifully maintained grounds/buildings that we spent about 4 hours wandering round. Loads of joggers getting the Olympic vibe. Not much choice of cafes up there, but we got really good sandwiches from a road side cabin near an entrance.

The Olympic Stadium is celebrating 25 years since the summer Olympics of 1992 was hosted here. The stadium is startting to look a little tired but you have to bear in mind it was built for the Olympics of the 1930's but the Spanish Civil War broke out and they had to wait until 1992, so the stadium is older...

Even though it's not the most famous in a city that also hosts the Camp Nou, the Olympic stadium is by far the most beautiful - not only in the city, but probably in the world. With a palace-like facade, it inspires tradition and greatness. It is also a rare place where you can enter for free in Barcelona, which... More

My boyfriend and I walked up to the stadium not knowing how much we would get to see, and we were totally blown away! The stadium itself was fantastic and exactly how you would expect an Olympic stadium to look. Very luckily we needed to use the restrooms and discovered that beyond the stadium was the most beautiful scenic area... More

The stadium is free to enter, a massive bonus for sports fans. The stadium was built for the 1936 Olympic bid that was cancelled due to the Civil War and passed on to Berlin. The name Lluis Companys remembers a Catalan leader executed nearby by Franco. It apparently sat in a poor state until the late 80s when Barcelona was... More

This place is great fun ! Use your metro ticket or Barca card and ride the funicular up to the hill. A few minutes walk uphill thru the walk of fame ( footsteps of Sergei Bubka, Nadal, Federer etc ) and you'll reach the stadium. Go inside - behind the seatin area following the yellow line and buy your tickets.... More

Staying in Montjuic

Neighbourhood Profile
Montjuic
Beyond the four columns standing guard at the Plaça Espanya, beyond even the extravagant and colourful fountains guiding your way up the boulevard, stands the impressive and towering structure of the Palau Nacional, the national museum. At this very spot in front of the cascades of the central fountain, Freddie Mercury and Montserrat Caballe gave the performance of their lifetimes to welcome the 1992 Olympic Games to this magnificent city. And true to its anticipation, the games transformed the city, reimagining the mountain of Montjuic with the development of an arena, stadium, and many other sporting facilities that are open to visitors year-round. Surrounding the adjacent side of the plaza are well-established hotels catering to business guests and a shopping mall transformed out of a historic bullfighting arena.
