The swimming pool of Montjuïc consists of two big ponds. She is known to have welcomed the competitions of dives of the Olympics of 1992. Since then, she opened her doors to the general public, what allows all to swim in these two mythical swimming pools overhanging the city. It is without a doubt, one of the most appreciated swimming pools in Barcelona because of its two ponds, its terrace (even though small) and its magnificent panoramic view of the city.
