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

We hopped off the hop on / off bus at this destination going through into the stadium with the view in front of you was truly special, we stopped off and had something to eat at the cafe, food was well presented with friendly staff.

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

Looks pretty impressive as you approach, inside the stadium it is scruffy with lots of flaking paint and concrete. Toilets are very poor (gents). Cafe was clean and had friendly staff serving. Outside the stadium was impressive with the large fountain waterfall taking the top spot. I am sure this place was very awesome when it forst opened. With a... More

So much history in one place! Unlike Athens, and perhaps other Olympic venues in other countries, this Olympic Stadium has withstood the test of time. By that, I mean since 1992, it has been well manicured and offers tours, or kids the chance to play soccer (football) or even race the track! Since Barcelona '92 was one of my favorite... More

This is a MUST see for everyone! Entrance is free and the views are spectacular. There are lots of fun activities for children for a small fee. Highly recommend it. You can walk most of the stadium and the stadium grounds. There are a few shops and cafes inside as well.

If you travel with kids and you and they love sports you can imagine to visit this place. No booking is requested and kids paid 10€ while an adult pays 5€ if enters as a visitor. Inside very kind staff guides you through the various sports such soccer, archery, boxe, athletics. It has been a nice afternoon, healthy.

Thank Enrico Paolo S

Staying in Montjuic

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
