    Estadi Olimpic


Built in 1929 for the World Exhibition, the stadium was originally known as Estadi de Montjuic. However, it was renovated and expanded for the 1992 Summer Olympics and was then renamed Estadi Olimpic Lluis Companys after the president of the Catalan government during the Spanish Civil War. The stadium has since been the host of major sports events, concerts, and political rallies.
