Very impressive stadium! The big eagle above the entrance gives this ground an almost Roman atmosphere. Don't cross the empty street without being attentive: a policemen will start scolding!!!

The ground has had a rich history and it's capacity once used to be 125.000.

For the 2004 European championships, the stadium was completely renewed. The present capacity of 'Da Luz' is 65.000.
