This paper presents the Muon Spectrometer of the ATLAS detector. The general characteristics of this system as acceptance, resolution and trigger capabilities are discussed together with the main physics goals and the background conditions. Four different detector technologies are used for triggering and precise tracking in the spectrometer; in the following, a description of the main characteristics of each of them, focusing on test beam results, is presented.
