Pictures Olympic diving swimming pool on Montjuic hill in Barcelona

barcelona_olympic_pool_montjuic

The best city swimming pool view in the world is in Barcelona. The fabulous outdoor Olympic swimming pool, designed by Antoni de Moragas, was built in 1992 for the diving events of the Barcelona Olympics. It has a seating capacity of 4.100 spectators and the panoramic views of the city  provide a unique backdrop for diving events. It is only open in July and August every year. The changing facilities are not in very good condition and the diving boards are closed to the public, but it's worth a visit just for the views. The spires in the background are the unfinished Sagrada Familia church by Antoni Gaudi.

This fellow was thrown out after sneaking up for a jump. The diving boards are not open to the general public.

Looks a bit like like synchronized swimming practise, but actually it was just a coincidence that this picture was taken when there where several pairs of girls swimming.
