Santiago Bernabeu stadium is the home of the Real Madrid FC team in Spain, although sports fans from all over the globe know it for being one of the world’s football “temples”, a venue where La Liga matches are hosted every two weeks as well as an important page in the history of this discipline having served as home to several UEFA Champions League finals and the FIFA World Cup final in 1982. Unlike most stadiums –commonly situated in the outskirts of cities-, the Santiago Bernabeu is located in the city centre, in the Chamartín district to be exact, so while you are in Madrid you can take a tour, visit its museum, buy official t-shirts and merchandising and, of course, get tickets to attend a match.
