  • A modern, fully refurbished Stadium to the last World Cup. Has a great Museum that shows the history and achievements of Sport Club Internacional and the International sporting goods shops and bars for you to feast your eyes on the shores of Guaíba. Worth the visit.

  • The beauty of the architecture, by this story, the Museum, by the location (from there see a sunset amazing), by structure (internal and external), accessibility ... simply the best!
