Estadi Olímpic (Olympic Stadium) of Barcelona

It has become one of the most emblematic corners of the city. The Olympic Sports Museum known as Museo Olímpico del Deporte is located next to the Stadium.

The name of the Stadium refers to Lluís Companys, President of the Generalitat de Catalunya (Catalonian Government) during the Spanish Civil War.
