¡Barça, Barça, Barça!
Camp Nou has been home to La Liga champions FC Barcelona since 1957, and has been the stage for some of the most memorable moments in football history. It has hosted two UEFA Champions League Finals, including Manchester United’s incredible last minute win in 1999, and was also the football arena for the 1992 Summer Olympic Games.
The stadium can hold close to 100,000 people, and is packed to the rafters for every Barcelona home match. The atmosphere is electric, with thousands of cheering fans decked out in blue and scarlet.
More than a club
Aside from match days, and due to the immense popularity of football across Europe, Camp Nou has become a tourist attraction for millions of visitors wishing to experience the historic stadium. Tours of the stands, field, dressing rooms, pressroom and more are available and a museum dedicated to the Barcelona team is also on the grounds.
The success of FCB means you nearly always have good chance at seeing one of the coveted European trophies on display. There are interactive displays and over 28 major trophies in the museum, making it a must see for football fans. The museum in fact holds the distinction of being the most visited in Catalonia - it received over 1.5 million visitors in 2014 alone, beating the Dalí Museum
in Figueres and Barcelona’s own Picasso Museum
