Estádio D. Afonso Henriques Reviews
Visited here (unfortunately) for both England Nations League games. Both completely under different circumstances. Semifinal for the evening game on damp miserable wet rainy day & evening & night!! Th... more »
良いスタジアムですね。ギマラエスの駅から徒歩で20分位でしょうか。スタジアムはサッカー専用スタジアムで陸上トラックがなく見やすいですし、2階までしかないので、フィールドを遠くに感じることも少ないです。コンコースにはトイレも適切にありますし、屋根もあります。見やすいスタジアムだと思います more »It's a good stadium. It is about a 20-minute walk from Guimaraes Station. The stadium is a football-only stadium with no track track and it's easy to see, and it's only up to the second floor, so you don't feel far away from the field. There is also a toilet and a roof on the concourse. I think it's an easy stadium to see.
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.
