Located inside the Camp Nou complex, close to the FC Barcelona offices, the club shop and ice rink, in the District of Les Corts, the Palau Blaugrana is home to Barça's basketball, roller hockey, futsal and handball sections.
The Palau originally opened in 1971 and, following a remodeling in 1994, now has seating for 7,585 spectators.
One of the nice aspects when you go to the Palau is seeing the shirts of former players hanging from the ceiling.
Andrés Jiménez, Nacho Solozábal, Juan Antonio San Epifanio 'Epi' and Roberto Dueñas are the legendary basketball players, Joan Sagalés, Iñaki Urdangarín, Òscar Grau, Enric Masip, Xavier O'Callaghan and David Barrufet represent the handball team and Alberto Borregán is the former roller hockey star, who has been honoured.
Apart from its importance to the FC Barcelona sections, the Palau became internationally famous during the 1992 Barcelona Olympic Games, when it hosted the roller hockey, judo and taekwondo competitions.
