Any sports fan will remember the iconic opening to the 1992 Barcelona Olympics, the archer firing his arrow to ignite the flame. To be able to wander through this piece of sporting history for FREE is even better. It has also many interactive games (with a small cost) that would be great for adults and kids to partake in to...

Visited here on our day at Montjuic. It's a quick visit but it's cool. The reason it's cool is because it's open for people to see and walk into. Also, the fact that it was actually built for the 1936 Olympics but not used until the 1992 Olympics is fascinating. The outside architecture of the stadium tells the story. You... More

I don't know what to tell you. It's boring. We visited it on our way to the Montjuic castle. You can easily skip it and won't miss out on anything. Only visit if you love stadiums.

We visited here while exploring the rest of Montjuic. My husband is a big sports fanatic and fondly remembers the 1992 Summer Olympics so we had to come here to check it out in person. He quite enjoyed seeing where all the famous athletes competed. It was neat to see the footprints along the sidewalk outside of the stadium of... More

The Barcelona Olympic Stadium is now being used as sport's camp (see under "Open Camp" for reviews), and its great to see this iconic space being put to good use. We viewed the stadium from the middle terrace level as we didn't want to participate in the sports in the arena. There is a cafe and small gift shop, and... More

You can just walk around, to see the fountains, enjoy the view or sit for refreshing drinks. Or have a picnic on the grass. For extra fee you can try activities in the stadium. There you can find footprints of famous sporstmen's on the sidewalk.

As an avid sports fan it is great to see this magnificent stadium being used for the purpose it was built. Whilst visiting there was a come and try camp, which encouraged children and adults to experience 'competing' in this venue. The recorded tapes of being on the start line is something that very few experience in real life.

Take bus from Espanya plaza and it took 10 minutes. Stadium is in the Montjuic park. In front of the stadium you can see the statue of Korean Marathoner Hwang Young Jo, 92 olympic marathon game gold medalist. but not many thing to see. It is just a park. Korean people must go and see this place.

Definitely worth a trip! There are lots of sports activities to try including football, boxing, running, long jump etc. The stadium and its surroundings are really impressive but the activities kept our 9 year old son totally amused and entertained. Would definitely recommend!

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.
