The Beautiful Game
Fans of legends like Ronaldo, Pele, Romario, Carlos Alberto and Nilton Santos will love to pay a visit to the Mecca of Football; the Maracanã Stadium. Officially opened during the 1950 World Cup, this all encompassing stadium features a capacity to hold 100,000 cheering fans. If you are lucky enough, it is possible to catch one of your favourite players in action. Otherwise, pay a visit to the sports museum with treasuries in store.
