Marx Beltrão, the minister of Brazilian tourism at the beginning of 2017 had visited the Santiago Bernabéu stadium in Madrid, Spain, one of the top attractions of the city in amassing highest revenue in general. If we look back, in last year, approximately one million people visited the most well-known football temples in the world and spent almost €16 million respectively. This spent amount had crossed the revenue of the Prado and the Queen Sofia Museums altogether.
“As a football nation we can explore an enormous potential and the Ministry of Tourism has been keeping an eye on this tourist segment, in order to support the sector,” the minister said.
Santos is a port city, situated 70 kms from São Paulo. Here, the Vila Belmiro Stadium can be found, a venue that also includes the Memorial das Conquistas (Memorial of Achievements). This place is known for the trophies of the club. Besides, photographs of famous athletes like the renowned superstar Neymar.
Side by side, visitors can take a look at a place which has been devoted to Pele, the King of Football. This legend is regarded by Santos FC and the football world as a well-known idol.
São Paulo is yet another precious stone in the crown of the Brazilian tourism. The Pacaembu Stadium and museum are the most popular attractions in the region. Travelers across the globe can feel the emotions of a football match in here. Here, the contemporary and interactive collection like objects and stories from the players, the club, and football itself, in 15 theme-oriented rooms can be found.
