The most important of these facilities is the Olympic Stadium. Constructed in 1929 for the International Exposition, it was subject of severe renovations in 1989 just in time to host the 1992 Olympics, the event that finally put Barcelona on the world map.
The Olympic Park features structures such as the Palau Sant Jordi and the sleek Telecommunications Tower, that redefined the Barcelona skyline.
All of them continue to play a pivotal role in the Barcelona of today, making Montjuic one of the city’s most popular attractions.
