    One of college basketball's greatest venues. Located on the campus of the University of Pennsylvania, it hosts the Philadelphia Big 5 teams: Penn, Villanova, Temple, LaSalle, and St. Joseph's.

    For the sports fans who wanna know what Philly ball is all about..If you can, treat yourself to a Big 5 game at the Palestra. So much history and great in-city rivalries...goosebumps

    Even if it's winter outside, it's summer in the Palestra. Dress accordingly.

    Most pathetic excuse for a college gymnasium ever. $0 of UPENN's 8 billion dollar endowment was spent here.

    Hottest gym ever. True definition of a hot box gym. So dress light or literally u will pass out

    Get here a little bit before tip-off; there's plenty of history and exhibits to take in by walking the hallways.
