Great venue. Good view of pitch and easy to access. Leave a drop pin where you leave the car as finding it again can troublesome 🤔. Traffic is horrendous on exit.

This a wonderful stadium that makes you feel very close to the players. Such a pity that is so seldom used !

I've been here numerous times and its one of very few stadiums where access and parking is very easy. The view all around the stadium is very good and when its full, it creates a good atmosphere.

This beautiful stadium was purpose built for the 2004 European Football Championship. Currently rarely used, is a sports arena with architectural interest and great potential thanks to the excellent climate of the Algarve.

The stadium is almost always empty! The awesome part is the parking-lot ... completely empty for you to drive (and to teach the kids how to park and make the islands/roundabouts). The stadium looks cool and the space around is nice to visit.
