Statue du Roi du Portugal en bas de l'esplanade menant au palais des Ducs. Statue en habit de guerrier. more »Statue of the King of Portugal at the bottom of the esplanade leading to the Palace of the Dukes. Statue in warrior's dress.
Good stadium with good sight lines from all seats. Modern inside with good facilities. A few downsides, one was the fact that alcohol wasn't served in the concourse. Don't know if this was a one off for the England game or not. Other downside is the access to the ground, steps and walk ways which became slippery might not be ideal for some.
Good ambient every single match, beautiful stadium and cheap tickets for first division matches.
