    We went to EURO 2004 in Lisbon for 4 days in June. We went to 2 football (soccer) stadiums in Lisbon, Alvalarde and Luz. We had a great time hanging out down town and partying in the streets. We stayed at the Hotel Travel Park which I would highly recommend (although its a little pricey)

    Luz Stadium (Stadium of Light)

    by ratherton Written Jun 26, 2004

    The Luz Stadium (Stadium of Light) is home of Benfica and is the largest of the 7 stadia used during Euro 2004. It has a capacity of 65,000 and creates a wonderful atmosphere when full (especially if 40,000 are from England).

    Estadio Da Luz - A Fitting Setting.

    Whilst visiting Lisbon I could'nt resist going and having a peek at the re-built Stadium of Light, home of Benfica and host of the Euro 2004 Championship Final.

    The paint looked barely to be be dry on this stunning venue, infact workmen were busy still putting the finishing touches to it.

    I thought that there would possibly be a Stadium tour or some commercial venture but was disapointed to find out that there was not. Really wanted to get a look inside the stadium though so tried to speak nicely to a security guard, he directed us to a resturant at 'Gate 11' which overlooks the pitch.

    Managed to go into the resturant, take a few snaps and have a look whilst dodging inbetween bewildered diners, haha, you gotta do it.

    I like Stadiums, they are places of worship, and this one ticks all the boxes. Would love to sample the atmosphere of a big match here, but Scotland got stuffed from Holland in the Euro 2004 play-off so that scuppered my chances, oh well.

    Equipment: Just your camera required for this one.
