This multi-purpose facility, located on Montjuïc in Barcelona, was constructed on the occasion of the 1992 Olympic Games. It’s considered the gem of the Montjuïc Olympic Ring, which also comprises arenas like the Olympic Stadium and the Pirornell Pools.

With an audience capacity of 18,000, Sant Jordi is the city’s most frequented Olympic facility, playing host to tons of sporting events, concerts, and special functions.

Palau Sant Jordi was inaugurated on September 21, 1990, two years before the Barcelona Olympic Games got underway. Today, it’s still one of the city’s masterpieces of architecture and modern engineering. Its designer, Japanese architect Arata Isozaki, made the most of mechanization in rendering the facility’s structural elements, making it flexible enough to accommodate all sorts of functions and limitless configurations.

  • Espectacular

    Se construyo para las olimpiadas del 92. Esta en lo alto de la montaña de monjuich. Fue durante años el estadio del FC Barcelona de basket. Las vista desde este punto son espectaculares. Se ve gran parte de la ciudad. Se puede llegar desde la plaza de España por unas escaleras mecánicas o bien en autobus. Si se sube a pie, hay diferentes paradas obligatorias a hacer (fuente de colores, castillo, etc)

Areas of barcelona Sants-Montjuïc

The neighborhood of Sant Antoni owes its name to an old gateway to the walled city, known as the Sant Antoni gateway, which was the main entrance route to Barcelona since the Middle Ages. The neighborhood began to be urbanized during the second half of the 19th century, when the wall was demolished, and especially after the construction of the iron market, in 1882. This caused that, urbanistically, it was integrated into the Cerdà Plan, that is part of the Eixample district.
