Palau Sant Jordi - Barcelona
To get to the venue, take the funicular from metro Parallel and then the escalator from Place Espanya.
This magnificent multi-functional sports complex was designed by Japanese architect Arata Isozaki as a symbol of Barcelona's brave modern future. It's an incredible piece of avant-garde architecture, an intelligent building where everything is controlled by computers. The 45m-high dome was built on the ground and lifted up to its present position over 10 days of arduous labour. The complex is used for sporting events, pop concerts, theatre performances and other spectacles.
