Many of the exposition structures still remain, including the National Palace (now the National Art Museum of Catalonia) and the Poble Espanyol (Spanish Village). The Olympic Stadium was constructed for the 1929 exposition in hopes that Barcelona would host the 1936 Olympic Games....but lost the honor to Berlin. The stadium was finally used for its intended purpose during the 1992 Olympics. One of the more popular attractions remaining from the exposition is the "Fuente Magica" (Magic Fountain) with its evening shows consisting of synchronized fountain-jets, colored lighting and music....

Terrific. Coincidentally, I was at the site this past Thursday, Sept 27. It is great. I loved the art museum and the magic fountains were terrific. Here's a few pictures. I missed the sports stadium, Spanish village and a few others, as I liked the Art Museum so much and stayed so long, it was dark when I got out!  I was able to compare a lot of the buildings from Ken's pics. They even still do the lights shining out from the museum! In the museum, I got pics of the great dome and the large arena that is at the back of the building.44953506262_23da5850fb_k.thumb.jpg.86588ebc966e020d783317aeb72669c7.jpg
