location Braga
function football stadium, sport
contributed by JMMM

The Braga Municipal Stadium is situated within the Dume Sports Park on the northern slope of Monte Castro. The location of the Stadium, in the sports zone specified in the Municipal Master Plan, will serve as an anchor point for any future development in the area as the city expands northwards. The location was chosen in order to avoid building a dam along the water's edge in the valley. The brief called for covered seating sections for 30,000 on either side of the football field. The design for the 40 meter tall Stadium consists of two squares with the same degree of sloping. The sloping roof, originally planned to look like a continuous visor, is modeled on the suspension bridges, marvels of engineering, the Peruvian Incas built to span the deep river gorges that separated the cities.
