I guess it is not necessary to say, but for those who don't know much about football, this stadium is the one where all the matches of the Fútbol Club de Barcelona, better known as "Barça", take place.
The inauguration took place in 1957, after three long years of intense work, mainly on the cement and iron structure. They used to play the matches in the stadium there was in Les Corts, but with the increasing popularity of football, the field became too small, so they had to build the current one. The stadium holds a capacity of more than 98,000 people, currently the biggest in Europe.
The stadium is 48 meters high, 250 meters long and 220 meters wide. The field measures 105 meters long and 68 wide, according to the UEFA norms, classifying it as a 5 stars stadium. In the beginning they had thought of calling it the FCB stadium, although the name that became popular between supporters was Camp Nou (New Field). But it was not until 2001 that this name became official, after a popular referendum to the members.
I haven't gone to many games, but whether you like soccer or not, it is an experience worth living, even once. The atmosphere, with constant cheering from the fans, makes you understand what it's such a big deal.
