The Estadio Azul is a 33,000-seat stadium located in Mexico City. This sports facility is currently used for association football matches and previously (until 1990) for American football. The Tazón México has been played at the stadium. It was the home of Mexican football club Cruz Azul until 2018, and also has been home for Atlante F.C. (hence the nickname Estadio Azulgrana) and the Mexico national football team, especially in the early 1990s. In summer 2016, it was announced by Mexico City authorities that plans to demolish the stadium would begin at the end of the 2017-2018 Liga MX season. However, in July 2018, the demolition project was put on hold and the stadium will temporarily host college sports. Demolition plans may resurface in 2020.
Across the road (literally, have a look on Google Streetview!) is the Plaza de Toros México, which is the world's largest bullring. This 41,262-seat facility is usually dedicated to bullfighting, but many boxing matches have been held there as well, including Julio César Chávez's third bout with Frankie Randall. The Plaza México replaced the ancient bullring Toreo de la Condesa in the Condesa neighborhood that was overwhelmed by the rapid growth of population in the capital. It opened on 5 February 1946 and annually since then, that date marks the date of the Corrida de Aniversario.

Like so many towns on the Adriatic, Monopoli's history has been thoroughly influenced by its east-facing position and its fortified sea-front walls and castle tell many a story.
Parking in or around Piazza XX Settembre, location of a colourful street market, head east towards the cathedral. To find it just look upwards and you are sure to see its elegantly conceived bell tower thrusting into the sky. Built in 1693, the tower is over 60 metres high, completely dominating the town below.
