Play sport at your leisure

Barcelona's passion for sport dates from the late 19th century when it spearheaded the introduction of many sporting specialities to Spain. This tradition has endowed the city with a superb range of sports clubs which enjoy great international prestige, some of them founded over one hundred years ago.

In Barcelona, you can stay fit by playing and enjoying your favourite sport, either at the facilities that have been specially set up for learning, practising or competing, or in the open air while you take in many of the city's iconic sites, including the Parc de Collserola, Mount Montjuïc and the Barcelona coastline. Some of the city's beaches give you the opportunity to enjoy a variety of water sports.
