The stadium was first opened in 1923 with a capacity from 17,000 spectators, after the club left its first home at Algiros. The stadium was severely damaged during the Spanish Civil War and then used as a concentration camp for political prisoners.
The ground was extensively renovated in the 1960s after the disastrous flood of 1957, reaching its present capacity of 55,000. It has been the seat for several important international matches and is renowned for its steep terracing and for being one of the most intimidating atmospheres in all of Europe in which to play.
On this guided tour you’ll visit all the main parts of the stadium, including the Presidential Box and Balcony, the Trophy room, the Press Office, the Home Team Dressing Room, the Players’ Tunnel, the pitch itself the Chapel, the Referee’s Dressing Room and the club shop. This visit to the home of one of Europe’s great clubs is a must for fans of all ages.
