Barcelona Spain's Second Largest City

Jan 22, 2008
It should also be noted that Barcelona is the capital of Catalonia. Today, a trip to the beautiful city of Barcelona combines the old with the modern and offers an attractive venue for tourists.

Barcelona Football Club

It is interesting to note that one of Barcelona's most popular and charismatic assets is the Barcelona football club and its stadium. The Camp Nou stadium is the world's third largest football stadium, following stadiums in Sao Paulo and Mexico City.

Anyone wishing to experience the Barcelona football club in live action during their stay in Barcelona must try to arrange match tickets in advance. Although the Camp Nou stadium is a massive stadium with a capacity of almost 99,000 spectators, at each home game every seat is usually taken. In the stadium's history, it has actually hosted approximately 120,000 fans at one game, but this was when standing at football games inside the stadium was still permitted. Today, all spectators admitted have to have a seat. The Barcelona F.C. team has played at the Camp Nou stadium since 1957 and renovations and improvements took place at Camp Nou in 1980 and 1994. The excitement surrounding each game at Camp Nou suggests the importance, love and passion for the game of football in Barcelona and Catalonia.

Camp Nou Tour

Even without experiencing a football match in Barcelona, it is possible to go on a tour of the Camp Nou stadium and museum. It may be surprising to note but this tour is one of the most popular attractions for tourists to the city of Barcelona. It should be pointed out that due to the popularity of this tour it is often fully booked. It is therefore recommended to book tickets in advance in order to avoid disappointment. Tickets for this tour may be reserved online.

In addition, booking a place to stay while in Barcelona can also be arranged via the Internet. The option of rented accommodation appears to be becoming increasingly popular in Barcelona. There is a wide variety of different types of vacation accommodation available in the city, ranging from luxury hotels to hostels, in order to suit different budgets.

For all Barcelona F.C. fans and football fans in general, a visit to the Camp Nou stadium produces a fascinating tour. Visitors are able to view this impressive stadium and may even get the chance to enter the VIP box. A visit to the Barcelona F.C. museum enables visitors to view various cups and trophies on display. Visitors will also be able to view the exhibited photographs of past and present club players and obtain an insight into the club history.

For those lucky enough to obtain match tickets to the stadium on the day of a football game, the blue and red colors swarming toward the Camp Nou stadium combined with the electric atmosphere will provide the visitor with a Barcelona football experience not to be forgotten.
