    La Bombonera (The Chocolate Box)

    Rio de Janeiro has the stadium where Pele performed miracles, La Maracana. New York (the Bronx) has the House that Ruth built in Yankee Stadium and Buenos Aires has the Estadio Boca Junior where the great Diego Maradona once played on La Boca Juniors. Head over for a game and try to catch one of the local teams and you'll be amazed at the passion of the fans.

    En La Bombonera

    I love football (soccer), and despite I prefer River Plate (eternal rival of Boca Juniors), I visited Boca Juniors' famous stadium "La Bombonera" (the bonbon case), but there was not any match that afternoon. This stadium is situated at La Boca (obviously!) and painted by local artists.

    Me encanta el fútbol, y a pesar de ser simpatizante de River Plate, el eterno rival de Boca Juniors, visité el famoso estadio de Boca, "La Bombonera", si bien no había partido aquella tarde. Este estadio está ubicado en La Boca (¡obviamente!) y está decorado por pintores locales.

    by pili Updated Jun 7, 2003
    Estadio Monumental (River Plate)

    As you would expect football is a national passion and the capital is home to the countries biggest teams: Boca Juniors and River Plate.
    Any visit to the city would be complete without witnessing a football match-
    In the picture you can see the River Plate Stadium: "El Monumental". AGUANTE RIVER!!!

    Como se imaginarán, el futbol es una pasión nacional y Buenos Aires alberga los dos más importantes clubes: Boca Juniors y River Plate.-
    Ninguna visita a esta ciudad estaría completa sin que se concurra a un partido de fúltbol. En la foto se puede apreciar el estadio pertenenciente al club River Plate: "El Monumental" Aguante River!!!!!!!
