Designed by Japanese architect Arata Isozaki, this multipurpose pavillion, inaugurated in 1990, was originally built for the 1992 Olympic Games. It's considered the jewel of what is known as the 'Olympic ring of Montjuïc', which also comprises the Lluís Companys–designed Olympic Stadium and the Bernat Picornell swimming pools. Palau Sant Jordi holds 17,000 spectators for sporting events and another 1,000 for concerts, where the biggest names play. Past performers have included Madonna, Lady Gaga, U2, Adele and more.
Palau Sant Jordi has a separate annex, Sant Jordi Club, that's used for smaller concerts and sporting events, with a capacity of about 4,600.
