About Montjuic Olympic Palau Sant Jordi Indoor Arena concert Venue

Palau Sant Jordi was built for the 1992 Olympics and designed by architect Arata Isozaki. As an indoor arena with capacity for 16 thousand people it often hosts concerts. I have seen The Cure and Mark Knopfler live here.

Palau Sant Jordi is part of the Olympic park complex. Within the park is a 136 metre high Telefonica needle like communications tower.

A competition entry for Telefonica for an Olympic telecoms tower, it is sited immediately next to the Palau Sant Jordi Arena.

Leaning gently from a three-point foundation to coincide with the angle of the sun at solstice, the tower's feet rest on a brick drum (a requirement of the competition).

This base features an articulated door that opens like an eye to provide access to telecommunication equipment. The heel of the tower is supported on a circular shell of white concrete, clad in broken tiles (trencalos).

The tower structure repeats the fundamental geometry of the base to support a segment which houses the array of antennas.

It is not possible to visit the interior of Palau Sant Jordi except when attending an event but it is possible to walk around the gardens with the Telefonica monument.


Accessibility, mobility & Clothing for Palau Sant Jordi

Step free access is via the Campana de la Pau entrance (the church bell suspended in a modern steel frame).

I recommend taking a water bottle because there is no drinking water fountain inside this garden. However there is a cafeteria kiosk by the bell entrance.
