Stadio Olimpico served Barcelona twice for big international events: Once in 1929, for the World’s Fair, and more famously for the 1992 Summer Olympics. It held over 67,000 people then. If you’ve come to see one of the top-level European soccer matches here, you’ll also want to check out the views; the stadium overlooks the city’s harbor. You can visit for free when there’s no event happening. Put Stadio Olimpico on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Barcelona vacation builder website .

  • It's interesting to see how the locals can rethink the uses of a place that once hosted the Olympic games.
  • Estadi Olímpic Lluís Companys formerly known as the Estadi Olímpic de Montjuïc and Estadio de Montjuic) is a stadium in Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain. Originally built in 1927 for the 1929 International Exposition in the city (and Barcelona's bid for the 1936 Summer Olympics, which were awarded to Berlin), it was renovated in 1989 to be the main stadium for the 1992 Summer Olympics. The stadium has a capacity of 54,000 (67,007 during the 1992 Olympics), and is located in the Anella Olímpica, in Montjuïc, a large hill to the southwest of the city which overlooks the harbor. In 2001 the stadium was renamed after the former president of the Generalitat de Catalunya Lluís Companys, who was executed at the nearby Montjuïc Castle in 1940 by the Franco regime.
  • I was there for a concert. Very nice place! Great architecture:)
  • Very cool stadium, still used for concerts, but during the day is completely open so you can go in and take a look!
  • Nice place. The museum of the stadium costs 5 Euro to visit.
