Not the biggest stadium in Argentina but by far the most famous one, at least among non-Argentinians. Boca Junior’s stadium, based at the La Boca neighborhood in Buenos Aires can hold 49,000 fans and is mostly known for the amazing atmosphere created by the Boca fans and for its steep stands (three of them). The vertical side will sway slightly under intense jumping, leading to a famous quote – La Bombonera no tiembla. Late, meaning the stadium doesn’t shake, it beats.
