Barcelona Olympic Stadium 'Lluís Companys'

The Barcelona Olympic Stadium , formerly known as the Estadi Olímpic de Montjuïc was originally built in 1927 for the 1929 World Fair. The Olympic Stadium was also built with the possible 1936 Summer Olympics in mind (which were eventually held in Berlin). The Montjuic stadium was renovated in 1989 to serve as the main stadium for the 1992 Summer Olympic Games. The Olympic Stadium can accommodate 54,000 spectators.

In 2001, the Olympic Stadium Barcelona was named after the former president of Catalonia, Lluís Companys i Jover. He was shot in the nearby castle of Montjuïc.
