The incredible transformation of Barcelona took place in the lead up to 1992 Olympic Games, and while the stories of the Games themselves often take center stage, it is the city that won. Barcelona and the 1992 Olympic Games have become the modern day model for the way to shape a city after hosting such an event, known as the 'Barcelona Model'. We will visit the two most important sites fo the Barcelona Games starting with Montjüic Hill where the Olympic Stadium and other event sites saw some of the most impressive stories and images during the Games, before visiting the Olympic Museum and seeing past attempts the city has made to host them. Afterwards, you will have the opportunity to take the Port Cable Car down to the beach where you will get unparalleled views of the city finishing along the Barceloneta neighborhood where I can recommend to amazing restaurants.
