  • The folk here are reet fancy but the gym is very good. It's hard in Spain to find a one off gym visit for the travelling gym guy who doesn't want a membership. At €11 its pricy if u just wanna lift. P...  more »
  • A friend suggested we visit as we wanted a swim on tour & to soak up Olympic ambiance! $75 Aussie dollars to enter for 2 adults & 2 kids - better be good! Swim hats, Goggles, locker key all required. ...  more »
  • Visited this as part of a walk around the Olympic park and the magic fountain. It's quite a walk from the tube stop (espanya), but I think you could the funicular up the other way. Great Olympic pool,...  more »

  • Though the pools themselves are fine, one of them was closed for no apparent reason and the other is often occupied by noisy crowds impeding a quite afternoon, with nobody in charge taking action. Some of the personnel at the entrance is less friendly than desirable. Furthermore, even if this is a public place, the price is still around 12 € for adults.
  • get away from the tourism in this nice pool, and outdoor section (summer only). make sure to bring a padlock and swim cap.
  • So pity thise swimpools are open only for 1,5 months in year — great place to swim!
  • I got up early and ran to this pool, 10km. I had packed €10 into my bag as I thought that would be sufficient... Public swim costs €11.85... The gentleman at desk seemed to take pleasure in repeating price and refusing entry... A thoroughly frustrating start to the day, run was good though!!!
  • Excellent for a good swim. I was looking for the other municipal pool, but I ended going to this one. Swimming in a 50m pool is great!

Where to stay in Barcelona

Because the city's metro system makes traveling from area to area relatively painless, you have more flexibility in choosing a place to stay. Barceloneta, the neighborhood surrounding the city beach is somewhat removed from the city center, making its hotels popular with families. Only a 15-minute walk from the center, Barceloneta has a more laid-back beach atmosphere but still offers several restaurants and entertainment options. Farther away from the beach and closer to the city center, El Born is a charming neighborhood well-known for its restaurants and lively bar scene. Eixample is also popular as it is more central and home to some of the city's best shopping and tourist sites, including La Sagrada Familia. For a more traditional experience, consider staying in the Gothic Quarter, the heart of Old Barcelona. This picturesque neighborhood boasts a tight network of historical architecture with boutique hotels and traditional restaurants.
