Palau Sant Jordi (Catalan pronunciation: [p?'law 'sa? 'ði], English: St. George's Palace) is an indoor sporting arena and multi-purpose installation that is part of the Olympic Ring complex located in Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain. Designed by the Japanese architect Arata Isozaki, it was opened in 1990. The maximum seating capacity of the arena is 17,960. It is the largest indoor arena in Spain.
The Palau Sant Jordi was one of the main venues of the 1992 Summer Olympics hosting the artistic gymnastics, handball final, and volleyball final events. Today, it is used for a variety of indoor sport events as well as for concerts and other cultural activities, due to its great flexibility.
The arena was the venue of the 1995 IAAF World Indoor Championships in Athletics.
The final of 2000 Davis Cup was the 89th edition of the most important tournament between nations in men's tennis. Spain defeated Australia at Palau Sant Jordi on 8-10 December, giving Spain their first title. The arena also hosted the finals of 2009 Davis Cup between Spain and Czech Republic with the victory for the Spaniards 5-0.
Palau Sant Jordi was the main venue of the 2003 FINA World Championships. A temporary, regulation swimming pool was installed for the occasion. It played the same role for the 2013 FINA World Championships, since the city of Barcelona hosted the Championships again after 10 years.
The 3,000-seat Sant Jordi Club opened in 2007 and is located behind the main building.
