Barcelona – Camp Nou

“‘There are stadiums great by reputation and association which, when first encountered, disappoint. The Nou Camp is not among them’. So said Simon Inglis, the doyen of all things ‘stadium’. I must admit that I was, from a distance, a little underwhelmed by the Camp Nou. Then I paid a visit and I got it loud and clear. In the couple of hours I spent wandering around the stadium, the museum and the whole complex, I started to comprehend the size, the history, the symbolism and above all the fact that it is ‘Més que un club’. Back in the early fifties when the Camp Nou was first conceived, there was something of a “Stadium War” being conducted by the big clubs in Iberia.” Estadios de España
