Barcelona’s Olympic Legacy
11:00 AM - Plaça de Carles Buïgas
We will meet in the Plaça de Carles Buïgas just in front of the four pillars and behind the Magic Fountain just down the road from Plaça Espanya.
11:15 AM - MNAC
Just outside the National Art Museum of Catalonia we will see the growth of Barcelona throughout the centuries in the build up to 1992 and where the other Olympic sites lie around the city.
11:45 PM - Olympic Museum and Ring
Entrance to the Olympic and Sport Museum is included in the price of the tour. We will head this lovely space to see the behind the scene stories of the 1992 Olympic Games and visit the main sites used during the Games.
12:30 PM - Montjüic Swimming Pools
Enjoy the Mediterranean sun, beautiful city views and a drink on the secluded mountain side terrace.
13:00 PM - Mirador de Montjüic
We will finish with views of the Barceloneta and the Port of Barcelona to let us get an idea of the transformation Barcelona underwent. I recommend the option to take the Port Cable Car down to visit the Barceloneta and beachfront.
Really enjoyed this tour with Patrick! From the start, Patrick was on top of it, with customer service. He connected early and again later to confirm booking. We needed to make a change, and he was communicative and accommodating, so we could still get the tour in. This tour is a bit different from the other more standard Barcelona tours, which gives variety during your stay. For something a little different, and in a different area, and if you have an interest in the Olympics, I would highly recommend. The tour shows you the sights in the area, the venues and the museum, a lot of which I wouldn’t even have known were there! The views are outstanding! It is a walking tour and there are some stairs, so keep in mind if walking is difficult for you. And Patrick takes good photos, if you want group photos! Patrick is personable, knowledgeable and entertaining! We greatly enjoyed this tour and can highly recommend it
Patrick Just knows everything about the olympic legacy of Barcelona. He keeps surprising you with relevant facts. Even in the olympic museum he guides you along great moments. A carefully built and spot on tour. When you are in sports? You Just have to book this tour.
This is a really interesting tour of the Olympic Park and offers a great insight into modern Barcelona. The views from Montjuic, especially coming down in the cable car, are amazing. Patrick is a brilliant tour guide - he really knows his stuff, not just on the games but also plenty on what to see and do in the city. Really recommend taking the tour.
The perfect introduction to Barcelona. 2,000 years of history from past to present.
