Restored to be the Olympic Stadium in 1992, in actual fact the Olympic Stadium was built for the 1929 Fair, designed by Pere DomŔnech i Roura.

In the year of its construction, it was the second biggest stadium in the world after Wembley, with a surface area of 66,000 m2.

The fašade of the Olympic Stadium is covered with ornaments of a classicist style and has a tower like a beacon.

Restored for the 1992 Olympic Games, it currently has a capacity for 55,000 spectators and is home to the matches of the Barcelona Dragons (American football team) and RCD Espanyol from the 1st Division of the Spanish soccer league.
