Public swimming pools in Barcelona.
In Barcelona you can find some public swimming pools where you can go to. The public swimming pools are mostly just to swim, there are no other features like a trendy bar or a DJ playing hot tunes to chill out under the sun. But to get some refreshments they are really welcome.
Some of the public swimming pools you can go to are:
Piscina Municipal de Montjuïc
This swimming pool is loved by the locals as wel, mostly because of the stunning views you’ll have over the city of Barcelona. The pool is located at the hill side of the Montjuïc and here were the competitions of the Olympics 1992. Unfortunately it isn’t allowed to use the diving boards. That would made it even more fun to go to this place.
