  • Really good for football fans. Here is the great "Nobel"Club Benfica. Great Bowl and the Museum is a lot. There are also other sports take into account and the time history of the world will be accommodated with a little.

  • Great stadium, on of the greatest I've visited. Do not miss the museum, it is very nicely organized and the lighting is perfect for some quality photography. The tour of the stadium takes you from the models of new and old stadium, to away team changing room (Benfica changing room is not available to see for security reasons), stands and finally the pitch where you will see two or three eagles, symbols of Benfica football club. One of these eagles is released before every game to circle the stadium and land in the center. Benfica was at one point the greatest club in the world and as such has a rich history that is beautifuly represented by the museum next to the stadium.
  • Great stadium and great atmosphere! Close to one of the biggest shopping centers in Europe. They also have an amazing museum where you can know more about the club history.
  • Very nice stadium. There is also a Shopping mall across the street. Be aware that tours end early.
  • If you profess to be a football fan you have to go. The guide we had was a local girl who was very knowledgeable and so very patient and helpful. I guess it helped that Eusebio was my hero when I was a kid and I have been interested in Benfica for over 50 years! The tour was a dream come true for me.
  • Stadium is very impressive. Guided tour is good but quite short. Only allowed in the away Team dressing room rather than the home one too.
