Barça and Penya, high-quality basketball
FC Barcelona’s second most followed squad is its basketball team. If you’d like to see the team with star Juan Carlos Navarro, you have two chances in January: on the 6th against Lagun Aro, and on the 27th against Gescrap Bizkaia.
If that’s not enough for you, you can go to the neighboring town of Badalona (metro stop Gorg on L2 drops you off right at the pavilion) to see another of the country’s great basketball teams: FIATC Joventut, the team where the young NBA star Ricky Rubio got his start. The “Penya”, as Badalona’s team is known, plays at home on the 13th against Blusens Monbus, and on the 27th against Unicaja de Málaga. The pavilion, designed by two local architects, received the prestigious Mies Van der Rohe award in 1992.
