venue for the fencing competition of the
Games of the XXV Olympiad.
Situated on the north-west edge of the
Montjuïc Area, the Palau de la
Metal-lúrgia, like the other halls on the
Avinguda de la Reina Maria Cristina, is
normally used for exhibitions and shows
organised by the Barcelona Trade Fair.
Hence, its transformation into the fencing
venue and training facility for the 1992
Olympic Games consisted entirely of
temporary modifications, just as though it
were for simply another trade show.
