On Tuesday 25th July, as those who have a good memory will know, it will be 25 years since the inauguration of the Olympic Games of Barcelona 1992. Without a doubt, that was the event which marked the future of the city in every way. But leaving aside the success achieved by our athletes, how has Barcelona changed in these 25 years because of the event? The renovations were much deeper than you might imagine. Let us see the most important ones.
The mountain of Montjuïc was the chosen place to lodge the Olympic Ring of Barcelona. The stadium, which was inaugurated by Alfonso XIII in 1929 underwent a total renovation that positioned it at the world's forefront. It was accompanied by Palau Sant Jordi designed by Arata Isozaki, the Picornell pools and the Calatrava Tower. All of them managed to create an incomparable aesthetic appearance that has remained intact until today and has revamped the place exponentially.
Parque de Mar (Sea Park)
The inauguration of the Olympic Games in Barcelona encouraged others to follow suit by opening the sea park in Barcelona. In fact, until its opening, the only neighbourhood that had good connections with it was Barceloneta. Thanks to the infrastructures that followed thereafter, today its inhabitants can enjoy an Olympic Port, the Norte Station and the pavilions of Mar Bella as well as a few beaches for your total enjoyment.
