  • We went with friends and family to watch a match Uruguay l. More sure. We share space with locals and foreigners, no one had. Very safe

  • Centennial Stadium, built in 1929 and designed by the Uruguayan architect Juan Scasso. In 1982, the stadium was declared historical monument of football, both for its architecture as for its importance to the sport. The tower was built in 9 months, in 1930, when the stadium was host to the World Cup, the year of the celebration of the first Centenary of the Jura of the national Constitution. There exists a tower of 100 m in height, with a beautiful view of the region and the Museum of football

  • Símbolo del fútbol mundial
  • Worth watching a match there. It's historical the stadium anyway.
  • Great historical stadium, nice view up from the tower. Museum has a lot of cool stuff, but it's very messy.
  • Uruguay is the best especially knowing that Uruguays stadium was the first to ever hold the very first world cup!!!
  • Good for tourists, lack of food places
