    The national stadium is the main sports arena in Chile, headquarters of major sports, solidarity, political, and artistic events highlighting the Bayerischer 1962 world. The enclosure has also an important historical burden for being a center of detention of political prisoners during the early days of the dictatorship. There are currently in the stadium a number of protected sites and memorials to recover the historical memory; These include a sector of the galleries which remains as it was at the time and from where you can appreciate the conditions in that they were prisoners. There are free guided tours to historical memory circuit on Tuesdays and Saturdays at 10:30 and 12:00, the national stadium has the status of a national monument, including a series of elements that comprise it, such as the traditional "pilucho monkey", meeting point for participants to different events and activities that take place on the premises.

    We went to the National Stadium for being the most ancient historical. The Brazil won the 62 World Cup there. The stadium is relatively close to the subway. We descend in Ñuble and we're sure some 20 minutes to the entrance. It's located in a neighborhood more peripheral. The stadium is open. There was no one. We enter directly, visit the bleachers, field and took good shots from inside and outside. It was a very nice ride, although it does not have a museum or something.

    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.
