The Camp Nou
The FC Barcelona Camp Nou Stadium was opened on the 24th of September 1957. The Camp Nou is the stadium of the mythical team F.C. Barcelona. That of the Cruyff, Maradona or Messi. Pelé, Platini, Lineker or Van Basten also trampled their lawn. The Camp Nou is the largest stadium in Europe with 99,354 seats.
The Camp Nou Museum welcomes more than 2 million visitors a year. It is the most visited museum in Catalonia.
Inaugurated in September 1957, the Camp Nou then had 2 floors - 3 today - and its capacity was then 93,000 places. After its expansion in 1982 it could accommodate up to 120,000 spectators. For until a few years ago the spectators could be standing in the stadium, which gave the possibility to be more in the same tribune. The Barça welcomes on average 80,000 spectators per game. It is fully packed for the Clasico or the very big Champions League matches.
Where is the Camp Nou ?
The Camp Nou is located in the Les Corts district, west of Barcelona. To get there you can use metro line 3 (green), stop Les Corts, or line 5 (blue), stop Collblanc.
You can also use taxis. There is also a taxi station at the exit of Camp Nou avenue Joan XXIII. Warning ! These tips are valid for visiting the Museum of Camp Nou. On match days, things change. We especially recommend to use the subway, and to come early before the match - 1h30 approximately - to be tranquil!
The Camp Nou Museum
The Museum is located within the walls of the Camp Nou. It is reached by the artery which connects the street Joan XXIII with the Palau of the Sports, the Palau Blaugrana. You can visit it yourself or take the services of a specialist guide from the Camp Nou for an exclusive guided tour. Count 1h30 if you do it by yourself, 2 hours if you take a guide.
