  • The stadium full of departure. Guide-professed itself. In General, everything does. Plus we managed to get a ticket for the match which was an amazing przezyciem. Even tv doesn't do this. Though I'm not a super fan of milo and glad I czaspolecam everyone to see.

  • An impressive stadium next to an impressive mall. I only experienced the outside of the stadium and I felt so small standing beside it. Visiting the fanshop is an experience I will never forget. Go see yourself and you understand why. As I visited it in the late afternoon I was able to watch some of the really young talents "playing" football. Really adorable to see them play.
  • It's a beautiful stadium. The crowd was amazing. That too from 1st level the experience is unbelievable.
  • The best Portuguese stadium (warning: this is a biased opinion) and THE place to watch a futebol game in Lisbon. You can take a guided visit to the hidden secrets inside and meet Vitoria, Glória and Luz, the 3 eagles of SLB.
  • Amazing stadium! Biggest in the country and the club is taking back its place as the biggest sports brand in the country. There is a nice fitness Centre from where you can see the inside of the stadium and a nearby shopping area - Colombo.
  • How do you review the Greatest Stadium in the World? Ok, I might be a little biased here as I am a supporter/member of SL Benfica - the Greatest Football Club in Portugal (by far (may be a little biased here again)). Anyhow, the Stadium is fairly new as it was built for Euro 2004 and sports the capacity for 65k spectators - and I have to say that no matter where you sit, the view onto the pitch is pretty clear. Apart from this it also has swimming pools, a small mall, many support bars, 2 pavilions, 1 museum - check it out - parking, gym, restaurant, etc. If you happen to be in Lisbon on a weekend (or tuesday/wednesday for Champions League) make sure you attend on of Benfica's games - the atmosphere, the love the aficionados put on their support for the team are well worth it, plus, the tickets are usually very affordable (book ahead, games often sell out).
