Football and Catholicism are the two main religions in Spain and Catalonia. Without underrating the temple of Barcelona, there is also the football temple "

Nou Camp"

stadium, home to the Catalan club; the biggest stadium in Europe. In Barcelona it is possible to buy tickets for football at each tourist bay. Below are pictures from the museum of "Barcelona". The entrance to the museum also acts as the central tribune of the stadium, and is decorated with portraits of the Catalan club stars, one being Lionel Messi.

Many of the great football matches were held here, including the World Cup of 1982, the European championship of 1964, the legendary final match of the Champions League between  "Manchester United" vs. "Bavaria" in 1999. These matches are known around the world as "El-Classico".
