  • Nice art deco design but unfortunately not a place where everyone can do something, I meanit is a stadium with fixed calendars for soccer matches and few sports, unfortunately, not strongly supported by the local or central government which is a shame. Looking for quite a historic place? You will like it, looking for fun activities, unless you join the fencing team.
