The Palau Sant Jordi is part of the Barcelona Olympic complex created in 1990 for the 1992 Olympic Games held in the Catalan capital. It has a maximum capacity of 17.960 people, making it one of the largest indoor sports halls in Spain.

Where to park at the Palau Sant Jordi

Moving away from the pavilion area, along the streets that run along the mountain you can find several free parking spaces.
