What to expect
Camp Nou & Football Club Barcelona
FC Barcelona is more than just a club. Find out at the Camp Nou Stadium and FC Barcelona museum. Admire Europe’s largest football stadium and discover all there is to know about the club: its history, all its championships and and a myriad of anecdotes.
Atention! Barça is short for ‘BARCElona’ but do not mistake it for the city. We only use ‘barça’ for the football club and it is pronounced “barsa”.
Ladislau Kubala was Barça’s first icon in 1950, the legendary football player created such an expectation that soon the old football ground was too small: Les Corts. The new ground – Camp Nou – was opened in 1957 and has nearly 100,000 seats.
The visit is worth it only to walk out to the vast stadium and imagine the crowd cheering Messi after a spectacular goal. You will be able to walk around, visit the changing rooms of visiting teams, see where the coach sits during a match, the press boxes, old photographs and the museum – with a collection of all the cups won during more than 100 years of competition.
The giant store is also spectacular – you will have some free time at the end to have a look.

Barcelona has not developed steadily but rather in leaps. One of these transformations was in 1992 – during the Olympic Games. Since then, Montjuïc hill has become a focal point of sports in Barcelona, as well as a cultural attraction with several museums and Poble Espanyol.
