Designed by the portuguese architect Eduardo Souto Moura and the Portuguese engineer Rui Furtado, the municipal stadium is inserted next to the urban park implanted in the hillside of Mount Castro, in the periphery of the urban area of Braga, facing the cávado river valley.
Currently used by Sporting Clube de Braga, it has a capacity of 30,286 seats, with only two side stands, and the tops of the stadium are made up of the rock formations on the hillside.
Its roof, completely different from those designed at the time, is supported by a structure of steel cables which cross the entire field, thus enabling the pitch to receive natural light.
Considered one of the most original stadiums in the world, it won the Secil Prize in two categories architecture, in 2004 and civil engineering in 2005.
Located a few minutes walking from the Historic Centre of the city, Braga's Youth Centre is a multipurpose space that offers versatile and confortable accommodations, suitable for every age group.
