The Montjuïc was selected as the site for several of the venues of the 1992 Summer Olympics, centered around the Olympic stadium. Extensively refurbished and renamed the Estadi Olímpic Lluís Companys. The 65,000 seater stadium saw the opening and closing ceremonies and hosted the athletics events. Around it was build the Anella Olímpica (the "Olympic Ring") of sporting venues, including the Institut Nacional d'Educació Física de Catalunya (a center of sports science), the Piscines Bernat Picornell (the venue for swimming and diving events), and the striking, telecommunications tower, designed by the architect Santiago Calatrava.
