I love the Arena Pernambuco. It's a very beautiful and lovely place. It has a beautiful architecture, giving a special touch in the space. Inside it, many people fit, this is very good, but it makes it difficult to leave, as there are many cars,...More

Wonderful Stadium for soccer lovers. Excellent view of the game. Unlike other stadiums built for the 2014 World Cup, this one will probably be very well used by local teams after the end of the event.

Great place, I loved the outside and the inside was not bad at all but Castelâo is nicer on the inside. Great views for pictures when you arrive and there's just so much room and comfortable.

I went here during the 2014 FIFA World Cup. This stadium is not the biggest of Brazil, it's small and compact. You'll sit closer to the pitch than in most other stadium here. During corner kicks you can snap some amazing photos of the kicker.
