Os Belenenses – Estádio do Restelo

Os Belenenses is founded in 1919 and is one of the oldest clubs in Portuguese football. The club is situated in Belém, just outside Lisbon. This can also be found in the club name as Belenenses means "The ones from Belém". The club is one of the 2 only other clubs to win the Portuguese league except from SL Benfica, FC Porto and Sporting CP. (Other club is Boavista)

Belenenses also participated in 11 European campagnes and they had a few remarkable results. In the 1987/88 campagne they managed to beat FC Barcelona (1-0, first leg 2-0 loss) and 1 year later they even went to the next round as they had beaten Bayer Leverkusen over 2 legs, 1-0 and 1-0. Estádio do Restelo also hosted a few national team matches and in 2014 the Women's Champions League Final was held here too.

For me personal it's still one of the best grounds I visited without a game, especially because of the beautiful backdrop.
