Owner description: Have you ever thought of taking a seat on the 22nd chair of the Dragao Stadium's Presidential Box? By visiting the Dragao Stadium, you will be able to experience the President's Jorge Nuno Pinto da Costa place and enjoy an inside and privileged look over this worldwide referenced work designed by architect Manuel Salgado. You will have the opportunity to see the pitch from the access tunnel's point of view, to feel the scent of the dressing rooms, to take the coach's seat on the press conference room just like you are making the match analysis... On this path you will appreciate an engineering project that delivers all of the requirements that make it environmentally friendly, you can witness on the stands the 29 kilometres of rows that can fill up to 52 thousand spectators and amaze yourself with the artistic legacy of Master Julio Resende and Alberto Carneiro. All of this in one tour only!

“Forget about the guided tour”
Reviewed December 1, 2013

This is a great stadium, built for the 2004 Euro Competition. However, we went on a guided tour, and it was abysmal. WE were not allowed to take photos and we were accompanied by a surly Security detail, to ensure that we did not ! We really felt like criminals! The tour itself was short and to the point, basically a case of "have a quick look and then get the hell out of here!". Awful. We went on a really hot day and no sign of water or a drink anywhere. Good and watch a game if you want, but don't bother about the stadium tour.

“The best and most loved Portuguese stadium”
Reviewed November 26, 2013

First, look at it from a distance. Then go down and walk around and pay attention to small details. Visit the Museum and get a light meal. Queue up to visit the stadium with a guided tour...Can you imagine why this club is so important and famous? Because the fans do everything possible for the city and for the club... Also, the blue colour is a key...

“Excellent visit - see the Museum!!!”
Reviewed November 3, 2013

The Stadium is an excellent and beautiful venue, with UEFA-FIFA adherence standards, top level. It is easily accessible by a metro station, with a nice restaurant. But the Museum is ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! It is fully equiped with multimedia resources, documents the main achievements by Porto Club and has nice interaction with visitors. It is undoubtfully a must see! (not exclusive for Soccer fans). Reserve about two hours for a nice visit.

“Great place”
Reviewed October 2, 2013

This is a really nice place to spend a couple of hours. The stadium is amazing and the food is good. The supporters os Porto FC are gently and sing all during the match.
