Estadio Municipal de Braga

Considered one of the most dazzling soccer venues in Europe, this 30,000-seat stadium is literally carved from a quarry. One end of the stadium is a sheer rock cliff, while the other opens to a view over Braga, a small town in the northwestern part of Portugal. A Pedreira ("The Quarry") was a site for UEFA Euro 2004. It is the home of S.C. Braga of the Primeira Liga.
