About Montjuic Olympic Stadium:

Known as Estadio Olimpico de Lluis Companys, designed by architect Pere Domanech i Roura for the 1929 Universal Exposition. The second-largest stadium in the world at the time, it was designed for the 1936 Olympic Games, but due to the Spanish Civil War never took place there and the stadium fell into disuse.

The stadium was extensively remodeled for the 1992 Olympic Games with only the facade being preserved. It was named the Montjuic Lluis Companys Stadium after the former Catalan President who was executed by Francoist forces in Castle Montjuic.

The Olympic stadium was the former home of Espanyol Footbal team until they moved to the new stadium in Cornella de Llobregat.
