  • Famous football stadium as the place where the first World Cup in 1930, where Uruguay was the defending champion. Very good lawn. Worth a visit for those who like football.

  • Get the Olympic rostrum during a night game, bewitched by the light and color, fast movements in the field and the murmur of the public beast. Since 1930, is repeated the ritual magic in this monumental historical place.

  • Is historic, it's beautiful, it's not the greatest stadiums ... but it's the centenary! The visitation is included in admission to the Museum and the access is free only on a polyline. Still worth it!

  • 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.
