Several Spanish cities will host the World Handball Championship in January. But Barcelona was chosen to host the final, the semifinals, and some games of the quarterfinals and the round of eight. The chosen venue is the majestic Palau Sant Jordi, located on Montjuïc Mountain, and one of the star buildings of the 1992 Olympic Games.
