  • The host address of Botafogo is historic, but the building is quite featureless, c om an ugly shopping around. a shame that is. At the Olympics, worked there the House of Austria, always crowded.

  • Although simple, the headquarters of Botafogo recalls milestones in the Club's history. Has field, swimming pool, restaurant, etc.
