A must-see for true Real Madrid fans. The new owner will delight you with great seafood and tapas.

It is not unusual to see the president of Real Madrid having lunch with players of his team at Mesón Txistu. This elegant Basque restaurant serves traditional cuisine from the north. Cristiano Ronaldo has been spotted here many times, enjoying a nice meal.
According to many a football fan, this is the most unique football experience in the world. The seven-storey building completely dedicated to football was created by LaLiga, FIFA, UEFA, CONMEBOL and the IOC, and provides an immersive experience with a 4D-cinema, a game area and a rooftop restaurant, to name just a few of the attractions.
