Despite is located in a bad neighborhood this is a must-see point when visiting Rio de Janeiro. It's not only a Football (soccer) Stadium from the begging of the last century, it's a place charged of history!!!!! All the brazilian work legislation was annouced here. The honor tribune is great!!! If you don't know, others football clubs tried to make Vasco da Gama, the Stadium owner, extrude the afro-descendant players in the 20s., Vasco da Gama refuse to accept that and the document is exposed there. The trophy room is amazing!!!!!

The stadium is the home of Vasco, Rio's 2nd largest football team (the 1st id Flamengo) and founded by Portuguese descendants. But the stadium itself is ugly, unwelcoming and not suitable for tourists. Thus, the neighborhood is far from the touristic zone fo the city, difficult to arrive and find, and quite dangerous. To visit a football stadium, choose Maracanã.

There's a big room with trophies, and all the fans can take photos.
There's a restaurant, the food is good. But it's too hot inside the room.
The sidewalk outside it's terrible, it's broken.
And there's a store to buy everything of the club.

It's simple, this is one of the great classic temples of soccer. Spain's, Italy and Argentina's National Teams said so. All negative reviews have a reason: the're writen by soccer adversaries of Vasco da Gama, simply because they don't have a stadium of they're own. Pure jellousy. São Januário is great, classic, the best place to be if you want to see soccer really close, with great and classic infrastructure.

Sao Januario and an historic place, this wonderful stadium belongs to Club De Regatas Vasco Da Gama. This club was one of the first to use black players and disadvantaged people, cauldron known among fans is situated in north Rio. This stadium was built in 10 months with money from fans. Vasco and the only club with carioca own stadium with the trophy saloon, pool and much more. Sao Januario was built, because the epoch of the bourgeoisie did not want that Vasco dispute is the state championship because of Vasco use black players and less favored by the rich of the season. It has a beautiful entry, day games for the place changes completely. If you want to know a historic place, with a beautiful story not miss Sao Januario.
