Velòdrom and Parc de Joan Brossa

Velòdrom and Parc de Joan Brossa

The city's main cycle-racing track, the Velòdrom d'Horta, was built in 1984 as the host venue for the Track Cycling World Championships and was awarded the FAD Architecture Prize the same year.The Velòdrom can hold up to 3,800 spectators and was an Olympic site in 1992 for the track cycling events.

The city has all kinds of facilities for cyclists, including the wooden Olympic cycling track, BMX, outdoor cycling on Collserola, and modern indoor venues. The Velòdrom also has a gym, five-a-side football pitch, a seven-a-side pitch and a basketball pavilion.

Barcelona's Velòdrom is part of the park designed by Bonell i Rius, which can be reached from the Ronda de Dalt ring-road, across a visual poem by Joan Brossa, which also marks the entrance to the nearby Parc del Laberint. This is one of his "corporeal poems", which, in this case, features monumental-scale letters tracing a walkable itinerary divided into three parts: birth, the journey, with pauses and incidents, and finally, the outcome. The letter "A" marks the beginning and end of the poem and walk.
