There is a link between the olympic stadium and an execution. The Estadi Olímpic Lluís Companys is originally built in 1927 for the 1929 Expo in the city (and Barcelona bid for the 1936 Olympic games, awarded to Berlin). It was rebuilt in 1989 to be the main stadium for the 1992 Summer Olympics. The stadium is named after the president of the Generalitat de Catalunya Lluís Companys i Jover, and is located on Montjuïc, a large hill to the southwest of the city which overlooks the harbour. President Companys was executed at the nearby Montjuïc Castle in 1940 by the franquism because of his ideas of self-determination for Catalonia.
