  • Being in that place is as back years ago, lots of unique sensations feel, is no doubt completely must-see for those interested in the history of Chile, to be where the missing detainees were and know how it was dictatorship in that enclosure was chilling where only those people who work there being witnesses and their testimonies have know what is really is suffering and fear they felt in those years, as Chileans should interest us more by our history and in this place only is given importance as a sports arena, it is a real shame that other places stand out as centers of memory as 38 London or Museum of memory and human rights, and being the most important of all the detention centres in the 1973.

  • Very cool the national stadium of Chile, is a 20 min walk from subway station, organized place, is not a new stadium, but well structured, excellent place for events.

  • I was at the U2 concert. The structure is still old, nothing looks like the new sporting Arenas. The output of a big event is compromised by the lack of transportation to return.

  • 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.
  • Very fun place to go, not expensive if you don't buy food or drinks inside. Try to go to a Chile match.
  • Great place for visiting... if you can do it... Looks more beautiful in pictures than in real life.
  • Grounds are showing their age, look somewhat abandoned - but - there's so many sport grounds - basketball, football, grass hockey, bicycle tracks, BMX zone, swimming pool, you name it. Also, stadium is a live memorial for the victims of a concentration camp (stadium was used for those purposes during Pinochet coup.
  • Good game but security is very tight. I'm not sure if that's a positive or a negative.
