The funder of the Olympic Movement, Baron Pierre de Coubertin, defined Barcelona as a superbly sports city. With the organization of the 1992 Olympic games, Barcelona has hosted 52 World Championships corresponding to a total of 32 different sports.
“Barcelona, a superbly sports city” gives us an idea of the enormous dimension achieved by Barcelona until it consolidated itself as one of the main capitals of international sport.
