  • Recommend a visit to the Museum of football, the Estadio Centenario and the Tower of the stadium, which has 80 m tall. Has a combo to visit the local 3 and I don't remember the correct price. In the Museum we found cups, pictures, shirts, cleats and other football paraphernalia. The stadium is from 1930 and is discovered, with hard plastic fixed seats in the stands, a large video screen only and nothing else. Climbing the Tower of 80 m, we have a lift area glazed with a 360° vision of the city of Montevideo.

  • We went to the stadium because of my daughter, she's crazy about football. The museo has a very good collection, and of course they put the Urugauia selection as the best in the world. In fact, in Uruguay they invest a lot in football, everywhere has a field and people playing. I liked. Now within the fields found a little dirty, deteriorated.

  • The estadio Centenario was built in record time for the Soccer America in 1930, the first in the series of world organized by FIFA. Uruguay had already been Olympic champion in 1924 and 1928 (Amsterdam and Colombes) in 1930 out champion again in remembered final against Argentina. Actuqlmente Museum which recalls the Uruguayan glories is located in the Olympic centenary Gallery. 2 World Championships to repeat feat never matched in 1950 in own Maracanã Stadium of Rio de Janeiro. You are excited to see cups, medals, t-shirts, photos of big feats. To who likes football is a must visit.
