    The stadium is a work of art. View your details changed, little preserved original features, and most importantly the allusive plate to stage the first World Cup, in 1930, is exciting. For visitation: at the entrance of the area, you will find the Museo of Uruguayan and world football, with a rich collection. For those who love the sport, it's worth the ride!

    I visited the stadium in July, first to gain access to the stadium, you pay a fee and passes through a very interesting Museum of Uruguayan and world football history, with several shirts, reports, cups, balls, cleats of times of Uruguay and of the main selections (Brazil), pictures, etc. Now the bleachers, I couldn't find so different from ours here in Brazil, dirty, barbed wire and those circular fences (presidio) to separate the twisted on game days, several infiltrations, very common to us Brazilians, now the lawn in good condition and has a good view of the field, but it is worth visiting and if it is on game day even better.

    This stadium is one of a kind, still bears it's old and classic architecture way back since 1930. A lot of history is attached to this stadium. Never to forget that it hosted the inaugural edition of World Cup..,!!
