The olympic bell is next to Montjuic Olympic Stadium. It was made in bronze for the XXV Olympic Games of 1992. The word "pace" is written in different languages on its edge. The Olympics rings are engraved on both sides as well as some commemorative sentences. The bell rings twice a day, at moon and at 7 o'clock in the afternoon. It was made in Germany and its transfer was sponsored by Lufthansa.
Unfortunatly the Olympic Stadium was covered by scaffolds. One way or another I enjoyed seeing it, in spite of it's smaller than as I imagined it. Its main entrance has two classic sculptures.

La campana olímpica está junto al Estadio Olímpico de Montjuic. Se fabricó en bronce para los XXV Juegos Olímpicos de 1992. La palabra "paz" está escrita en el borde en diferentes idiomas. Los aros olímpicos están grabados en ambos lados, así como frases conmemorativas. La campana repica dos veces al día, a las 12 del mediodía y a las 7 de la tarde. Sefabricó en Alemania y su traslado fue patrocinado por Lufthansa.
Desgraciadamente el Estadio Olímpico estaba cubierto por andamios. De todas maneras me encantó verlo, a pesar de ser mucho más pequeño de como me lo imaginaba. Su entrada principal tiene dos esculturas clásicas.
