  • Impressive pool, chlorine based and sadly around the open pool the building covers the view. There's an inside pool so it's ideal for training and getting away from tourists. The lido up the road (Piscina Municipal de Montjuïc) is much better because it has the views and not full of chlorine. Tip: take a lock for the lockers 🔐
  • 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.
  • So pity thise swimpools are open only for 1,5 months in year — great place to swim!
  • get away from the tourism in this nice pool, and outdoor section (summer only). make sure to bring a padlock and swim cap.
  • Always busy but always space to do laps.
