Your Guide to: Camp Nou
This one is a must for any football fan visiting Barcelona. In fact, we often hear surprised non-football fans reporting a great visit to Camp Nou!
Camp Nou, which translates literally from Catalan as New Field, has been home to Futbol Club Barcelona since it opened in 1957. It has been an essential part of Catalonia’s sporting and cultural identity for almost 60 years.
If not, never fear – Camp Nou offers one of the best tours in the city.
To enjoy Camp Nou’s self-guided tour at a leisurely pace, we suggest allowing 2 hours for the full visit.
The FCB Museum is an interactive experience, guiding you through the history of the club. You will find iconic memorabilia here, including the football boots of legends such as Maradona and Ronaldinho.
Messi Space is a recent, but very popular addition to Camp Nou. This is a section completely dedicated to Argentinian footballer, Leo Messi’s greatest achievements.
Your self-guided tour encompasses the player dressing rooms, tunnel, commentary boxes, TV studio and, of course, the pitch.

What you need to know:
If you are only interested in taking the tour of Camp Nou, make sure that there are no matches taking place on the day you wish to visit. On match days, the tour is restricted to the museum space.
To avoid the crowds, the best times to take the tour are before 11am in the morning, or after 4pm in the afternoon.
Camp Nou is approximately 5km from Barcelona city centre, so we recommend taking the bus or metro.
