Have a swim at the Olympic Pool

The Olympic swimming pool in Barcelona

The Olympic Swimming Pool located on the hill of the Montjuic must be one of the swimming pools around with the best view. The swimming center opened in 1970 for the European swimming championships, it was remodeled and modernized for the Olympic Games in 1992. These days it is a public swimming pool.

Remember the Slow video by Kylie Minogue? Indeed, it was taken at Barcelona’s Piscina Municipal de Montjuic. While the pool is most known for hosting the diving events of the 1992 Summer Olympics, it was first built in 1929 for the Universal Fair, and then renovated in 1955 and the early 1990s.
