Our pilgrimage to Camp Nou

Barcelona is an awesome city – and football fans the world over are drawn to Camp Nou, the city’s famous stadium.

Join our pilgrimage:

The high profile facility is set to become an even bigger attraction because of an expansion designed to lift its capacity to 105,000.

Already the biggest stadium in Europe, the home of FC Barcelona is expected to be upgraded over four years, starting in 2017.

As well as the hallowed turf that has hosted numerous senior international matches, the stadium currently includes a memorabilia shop; training pitches; a chapel; and the FC Barcelona Museum, which is said to receive more than 1.2 million visitors a year.

During our visit, we were in awe at the FC Barcelona trophy-room, which contains shelf after shelf of silverware – every trophy, or a replica of every trophy that the club has ever won.
