  • A tourist spot that was marked in the history of the country after becoming in an internment camp in dictatorship. It's not just football's national history.

  • I'm a lover of football and that was the original intention to meet the stadium. However, we were surprised by a free guided tour by Chilean history so worth the clarification: If you want to visit the stadium just for the sports side schedule a visit through the form available on the website. If you want to attend the culture tour (the 10 and 12:00). Access is by metro line 7, officially opened just over 1 month, national stadium station. The guide will tell the story of the stadium when used for about 2 months to imprison citizens who rebelled against the power. The military used the galleries so that the stadium served in concentration camp. There is a Museum in these galleries, you will know the history of 8 hatch and excerpts from various human rights violations that occurred a little more than 40 years in Chile.

  • Where Brazil won your second cup and also served as a place of imprisonment in the dictatorship of Pinochet. Enter the site and check the visits that can be made with Spanish Guide to learn more about this sad part of the story. But if you want so see the stadium can also, when I went there was only good entry near the pool walk to the other side and there will be the entrance to meet the stadium. You don't have to pay. See the left side has been a part of the Pinochet-era grandstand which was maintained, with a beautiful phrase above.

  • U de Chile... What else do you need? Sacred grounds.
  • Great stadium, near to Ñuno Metro Station. We watched a game of Universidad de Chile at the Andes sector and it was very comfortable. Close to the field with great visibility.
  • Nice place. Just take the Metro and arrive the station located near.
  • While aging, this is by far the best place to swim & train in Santiago. The outdoor and indoor 50m olympic pools are large and maintained well enough to allow for pushing yourself on sets. The teams & individuals that train here and friendly and focused, which makes it easy be so yourself. The outdoor pool has quite a bit of sand collecting at the bottom of the pool, but the water is otherwise clean. Watch your things, as there is quite a bit of foot traffic and minimal security at the park. There was also only 1 functional shower in the men's locker room. Small complaints, though, after enjoying some great training sessions in the outdoor pool.
  • The biggest stadium here in Chile, lots of historical stuff, but you can't hide from sun
