Palau Sant Jordi is known for several things. Although the stadium is a sports arena, it has witnessed several huge artists such as Beyonce and Maluma. Palau Sant Jordi was designed by the Japanese architect Arata Isozaki for the 1992 Olympic Games, part of the so-called Olympic Ring built on the Montjuïc hilltop, together with the Lluís Companys Olympic Stadium, the Olympic Esplanade and Sant Jordi Club. Its most distinctive feature is its cupola, which was built at ground level and lifted to its present position over 10 days on 12 hydraulic jacks.
People nowadays travel in bulk just to be able to attend concerts or sporting events. Since this beautiful arena is located very close to Plaça Espanya, below is a list some of the best apartments you can rent whilst visiting the city.
