I had a real great swimming experience at Bernat Picornell. Clean pool, spacious lanes and all equipment available to be used. I will definitely be back to train! The only downside: pool entry is quite expensive for non-members (12,15 EUR).

Espanya, beyond even the extravagant and colourful
fountains guiding your way up the boulevard, stands
the impressive and towering structure of the Palau
