Built to accommodate the 15 000 athletes taking part in the 1992 Olympic Games, the Olympic Village transformed Barcelona into a seaside resort. Modern and well laid out, it boasts beautiful gardens, broad avenues, shops and an array of leisure facilities. Don't miss the new marina or its twin 153m skyscrapers (the Hotel Arts Barcelona and the Torre Mapfre), from the top of which you can enjoy breathtaking views of the city and its coastline.
