  • A stadium that has a lot of history, but is poorly preserved, this attraction is free, it pays to know anyway!

  • We went to visit the stadium of second stage of Brazil in the World Cup of 62 on Sunday, around 12:00. We heard there were guided tours on Sundays, and we were. Upon arriving, a man leading a group, showing in detail each space used as a prison and torture during the Pinochet dictatorship. Yes, he was a survivor of the dictatorship, who was jailed for 52 days at that time. I was impressed with what I saw and heard. A whole wing of the stadium (hatch 8) preserved exactly as it was built, there are no fans in that area in preserving the memory of all suffering lived there. Near field was nothing compared to what I lived and I could feel in that place. It's exciting, and the wealth of detail with which you described all that period could only come from someone who's actually been there. If you think you're going to get there and see some pictures or arsenal Museum about football, and especially about the 62 World Cup, don't bother. There's a lot more than that. A PEOPLE WITHOUT MEMORY IS A PEOPLE WITHOUT A FUTURE.

  • We went in a group of 8 people. We got there on a Sunday morning, and saw several people in the vicinity (some practicing exercises, training other dogs). As the stadium was closed, kindly people who work there have authorized us to enter on the premises of the stadium, including allowing you to go to the field. Cool, if you like, is worth the visit.
