Head to the back of the Olympic Stadium and check out the Galeria Olimpica where you'll find a great narration with videos, posters and images showing the history of the Olympic Games in 1992.

NileGuide Expert tip:
For a full taste of the 1992 Olympic ''circuit'', after the Olympic Stadium check out, the Palace Sport, The Palau Sant Jordi and the public swimming-pool, indoor and outdoor called Piscines Bernat Martoll. The best time to go is during the day when you can see everything in its totality.
Home to some of the greatest football matches, rock concerts, festivals and most importantly, the main attraction for the 1992 Summer Olympics, Estadi Olympic de Montjuic (Olympic Stadium), has become a center piece for Barcelona events. With a capacity of 56, 000, Olympic Stadium has played host to RCD Espanyol since 1998, the Barcelona Dragons American Football Team and has seen rock icons such as Bruce Springstein, The Rolling Stones, Tina Turner, Guns n' Roses, Madonna and Bon Jovi grace its stage. Even if you're not in town for a specific concert or event, it's worth just passing by this monstrous building which is located in the Anella Olimpica on Montjuic, as the view overlooks the harbour and is quite spectacular.
