In 1992, Barcelona, for long an avant-garde city celebrates again its revival by hosting the first Olympic Games without any boycott for 20 years. This event was a turning point in the history of the city, and has modernized numerous infrastructure of this industrial town, to open it more and more to the world. Always modern and avant-garde Barcelona took advantage of the dynamism of the Olympic Games to revitalize its neglected waterfront, and seduce the world. Climb the hill of Montjuic to the Olympic venues, enjoy stunning views of the sea and the city, then follow the beaches to the district of Poblenou, mix of small town and flourishing modernity. Dare the longest route, you will not regret it...
