  • The Olympic swimming pools in Barcelona, very beautiful and well maintained by all its employees and collaborators

  • Nice pool, even though there is some maintenance needed. Yet it remains a magical moment for me to swim in an Olympic bath!

  • Very nice swimming pool and gym room with pretty good machines. Weak point: Lockers, showera and changing room would really need a refresh.
  • Clothing optional swimming, Saturday nights. 9 p.m. I think.
