We arrived in taxi and we spent one of the most exiting times in Montevideo. We attended to Peñarol´s football match. One of the most popular teams in Uruguay. Awesome atmosphere, the fans never stopped encouraging their team.

This stadium was built between 1929 and 1930 to host the 1930 World cup. In 1985 I believe this stadium was designed as FIFA historical monument in soccer. It is a beautiful stadium.
