the 1992 olympic stadium

Estadi Olimpic

First opened in 1929, the 65,000-capacity stadium was given a complete overhaul for the 1992 Olympics. The stadium was designed by architect Pere Domènech. The location is on Montjuic hill which overlooks Barcelona from the south of the city. You enter from the northern end, in the shadow of the dish in which the Olympic flame burned.
