Estadio Santiago Bernabéu

Estadio Santiago Bernabéu
An iconic stadium and home of Real Madrid. I thought I had better take a last photo before it is turned into a giant aluminium George Foreman grilling machine. (Thanks to Keith Burton for that analogy! Better than the 'Cornish pasty' I compared it to at first!). I saw the plans a few years ago - I taught English there - so I know of what I speak ...and was horrified!
OK, here it is

I sincerely believe the current building should be preserved as a cultural and architectural icon.
But I am too late as the building work has begun and Real Madrid are playing their revived season's fan-less home match programme at their training complex at Valdebebas to the north-east of Madrid and I presume they will play there until 2023.

It does look very attractive. You've made me curious to see the Cornish Pasty when it's built.

Thanks, Jean. I suggest you Google it under something like new designs for Real Madrid's stadium, or something like that!. Just guessing here!

"Cornish pasty" :-)
However a beautiful perspective made of high contrasts and a very expressive sky.

Oh dear, not a good change then Andy. Remember what they said about the Sydney Opera House, and now look at it! You may be pleasantly surprised...I hope so anyway.

I've just Googled it Andy.................and what a monstrosity. Comparing it to a Cornish Pasty is an insult to Cornish Pasties.

I'm reminded of one of the "George Foreman" grilling machines (with out the handle).
