Santiago Bernabeu Stadium
While my sister Elena and I were in Madrid in May we visited the Real Madrid football stadium Santiago Bernabeu.
Saturday morning we made our way to the stadium, once there we finally found where to get tickets and made our way to the tour start. As you can imagine it was quite busy, to start the tour which is without a guide you go to the top and work your way downwards.
So at first you see the whole stadium which is quite awesome, from up top you can only imagine what it would be like to be there when it is full of spectators. We were able to sit in the seats and then inside you can see lots of memorabilia, the trophies they have won, old footballs, kits, books, shoes and much, much more.
You then walk around other areas, but the changing rooms were not opened to the public as if I remember correctly they were playing that evening.
There is a huge store to buy lots of Real Madrid stuff which we did not do, in fact we did visit a sport shop and my sister and I bought our kids a FC Barcelona t-shirt.
My whole family are in fact Barcelona supporters and hope to one day visit their stadium and even see them play! But it certainly was a great experience to see the Bernabeu stadium!
