Home of Botafogo de Futebol e Regatas, the Olympic Stadium held the Summer Olympic Games Rio 2016. An amazing building customized with Botafogo's colors black and white. Botafogo is also the most traditional team in Brazil, tha had some of the most brilliant players in the history like Garrincha, Nilton Santos, Jairzinho, Amarildo and many more.
It is possible to look at some statues at the west entrance.
Try it during a match!

The 2016 Olympic stadium that is Botafogo football clubs home stadium. It has been renovated since the the Olympics so reduced capacity but you can very much still recognise it. I went to a Botafogo game and it wasn't a huge game but it was still cool to catch a game. If you are a sports buff like I am it is worth visiting.

Nice atmosphere even though we were cheering for the visiting team. It could improve on the food sold at the venue not a lot of variety.

Try Uber instead of taxis! Way cheaper

Easy acess by metro and train. It´s better to arrive earlier because the lines take time to enter in the stadium.
