  • It is a picturesque Stadium, a monument to the history of football, the first stadium where a global, very nice Museum was played. To watch a match is often uncomfortable, bad seats, cold afternoon very hot in the Gallery Amsterdam, steps away from the Court, even though it is traditional. (Compared to other stadiums around the world)

  • Divine place to walk alone with children. Drink mate and there are amusement park, food, mechanical games. To spend with family.

  • It is a building aged and steeped in history. You should have a little more than maintenance. A beautiful experience was see the party of the Uruguayan selection with the selection of Brazil and observe respect for people when the anthem of his rivals on the Court. And not to mention the sentiment shown by people towards their selection. Exciting!

  • Símbolo del fútbol mundial
  • Inaugurated in 1930, the first FIFA World Cup was played here. Considered monument and place of interest.
  • Worth watching a match there. It's historical the stadium anyway.
  • Amazing stadium home for urugay's national team
  • Great historical stadium, nice view up from the tower. Museum has a lot of cool stuff, but it's very messy.
