When we talk about the Barcelona brand and the city's most important attractions on an international level, Football Club Barcelona is one of them without a doubt.
Barça is considered one of the most successful clubs in the world, having given unforgettable moments and eras to its fans and football lovers in general: from Cruyff's dream team, Ronaldinho's dribbles, the two hat-tricks of Messí, Iniesta and Xavi, to the Barça of today with Lewandowski and Pedri.
All this brings millions of tourists every year to the Spotify Camp Nou area, located in the Les Corts district of Barcelona.
Currently, the Spotify Camp Nou stadium is under construction and can not be visited, but in this article, we leave you the rest of the activities that are still available to flood the Barcelonista culture in the Camp Nou area, which is very large and has many attractions to visit such as the Museum, the Palau Blaugrana, or the Masia.
On the official website of Futbol Club Barcelona, you can find all the options available to learn about the origins and history of the club, see the titles and trophies won, anecdotes of the footballers, etc...
The basic ticket for the Immersive Tour includes a visit to the museum with an audio guide and access to the Stadium 360 Immersive Room. In addition, children enjoy free admission up to the age of 4.
But Barça offers you options that you can add to the basic ticket to complete your experience as much as you want:
All of them include the museum with an audio guide and the Stadium 360 Immersive Room, but depending on your choice you can access, among others, the Palau Blaugrana, the changing rooms, the press room, score a goal with a RoboKeeper, or enjoy the Barça Virtual Dream.
Some of the above options may include enjoying live basketball, futsal, handball or hockey matches if your visit coincides with match days.
Either way, whether it coincides or not, the second option that you should take into account to immerse yourself in the Barça experience is to enjoy a match of the different sections of the Club. Futbol Club Barcelona has multiple sections that cover a lot of sports. Among them, basketball, futsal, handball and hockey play all their matches at the Palau Blaugrana. If the season of any of them is already underway, you can buy your ticket on the website or at the ticket offices and enjoy yourself like a Culé.
The magic of Camp Nou and its surroundings is not only due to the matches that are played today but also to all the history and footballers who have grown up in La Masia, the centre of sporting and academic training between 1978 and 2011 of thousands of children, who played in the lower categories and pursued the dream of wearing the shirt of the first team. In this typical Catalan Masia, bought by Barça in 1950 for the construction of the Camp Nou, footballers such as Messi, Iniesta and Guardiola grew up.
La Masia is located next to Camp Nou and is another must-see to complete your visit.
