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.

Fortunately I live locally so drove to the stadium. Those that had to use public transport found it very difficult. This match should have showcased the Algarve, but instead it left many visitors frustrated. The external lighting is poor and the ground around the stadium...More

Fantastic stadium, fairly easy to get to by bus, not too expensive. Inside the ground, a bit of a lengthy walk up to the seats, but an excellent view when you get there. But , pre match, the fanzone had queues hundreds deep, and there...More
