"Olympic Village" Olympic Village Tip by JanPeter74

Olympic Village, Barcelona: 5 reviews and 9 photos

  Olympic village area
by JanPeter74

In 1992, Barcelona hosted the Olympic Games. The Olympic Village and harbour date from this time. The area is filled with newly constructed buildings but, in my opinion, lacks atmosphere. If you have plenty of time you can walk along the seafront, starting at the Maremagnum shopping centre (close to the statue of Columbus), visit the beaches at Barcelonette (kind of a village inside the city) and continue all the way up to the olympic village.
