The first permanent circus building of Barcelona was located in the center of Plaça de Catalunya. It was called Circo Ecuestre Barcelonés and it offered circus shows for 16 years, from 1879 to 1895, a milestone never reached by any other establishment in the sector. Its programming was regular and quality, and had a seating capacity for 3,000 viewers. That is why it became the second most popular leisure place for the people of Barcelona at the time, after the Liceu. It was demolished to urbanize the square.
Shortly after in 1919 construction started on a new circus building in Barcelona: the Teatre Circ Olympia.
