  • Although this beautiful and historic Stadium does not have a guided tour, you can visit the same and ask any guard permission to gain access to the stands and to take photos of the same. Remember the famous door 8 is still intact as in the times of the harsh Chilean dictatorship, is worth a mention of part of it.

  • The stadium is open for visitation. You can arrive, enter through gate 7 and have access to the grandstands, dressing rooms and the field (just can't step on the lawn). But the best that this reservation Stadium is the story that he keeps. Too bad hardly anyone knows that there are guided tours Tuesday to Saturday at 10:30 and at 12:00. During the military dictatorship, the stadium was used as a prison. Despite having gone through several reforms, there is an area in which preserves the places where political prisoners were kept. In these areas only if you can access during the tour. The two tabs that have accompanied us Angelica and Moses know all details of history and show where the prisoners slept, communicate and even the place where they were tortured. We still got lucky to find Manoel Mendez, one of the prisoners who spent 50 days in the National Stadium. It helps to keep the story alive and gave some testimony for us.

  • It was really amazing this visit. Both the stadium itself, with a lot of history of football, as at least not give dictatorship. That Yes, a little publicized and mandatory. Very well preserved the spaces used as a prison, a clear story about the format gives Chilean dictatorship. Always tours at noon, expect the Guide at the gate 8. There are other timetables and few specific days that do not meet. Valley search and call before to not miss trip.
