World Class Entertainment
When a building is designed for the sole purpose of supporting the Olympics, you can guarantee that no expense is spared and design is as important as function. Book a room or suite at any one of the excellent and convenient hotels near Palau Sant Jordi in Barcelona and you will be right up close to an event venue that started as world class and only went up from there. Designed by the Japanese architect Arata Isozaki explicitly for the upcoming 1992 Summer Olympics in Barcelona, it is one of a series of buildings, which include the Olympic Stadium, the Olympic Esplanade, and Sant Jordi Club, that are collectively known as the Olympic Ring.
In the two years before its driving purpose occurred, it shone as a venue for concerts and city events. For the Olympics, it hosted gymnastic competitions, handball finals, volleyball games and was the main site for the Paralympics. If there was any concern that the location would fall to disuse once those memorable games were over, they were quickly eradicated by a calendar that filled up instantly and remains full of world-class events to this day.
Continuing in the realm of Sports, the venue has hosted World Indoor Championships, European Basketball Championships and the 2014 Basketball World Cup. Expanding beyond sports, it has also been home to unforgettable concerts by the likes of Coldplay, Iron Maiden and Lady Gaga. Additional acts that have performed there include Rihanna, Sir Elton John, and 30 Seconds to Mars. Become part of the next big event and discover how a single venue can be both beautifully designed and incredibly welcoming when you stay at the hotels near Palau Sant Jordi in Barcelona.
