What about getting to personally know the place where it all started for Diego Maradona? This tour around the streets of La Paternal covers it all: the Diego Armando Maradona stadium (the same ground in which he played for the first time and at his best in Argentina), the Argentinos Juniors’ museum, located under one of the terraces and the Sanctuary, built by the club after Diego’s passing away to collect and protect the thousands of souvenirs that everybody left there for him.
We’ll also get a look of the tranquil neighbourhood in which Diego used to live, walking down the same streets he walked. Things haven’t changed a lot there since he moved in the early 1980s, so you’ll feel how his day to day was. Also, we will learn how big his impact was both in the club and the local community and what is his legacy. The surroundings and the outside walls of the stadium are packed with cool street art not only about Diego but also about other idols of the club we’ll also learn about.
Last but not least, we will visit the Argentinos Juniors’ museum and we’ll tour the stadium. “El Bicho” is a traditional side from the argentinean first division, worlwide known as the craddle of the stars. It has a vigorous academy that provides first class footballers for the national team, from Maradona to Biglia, from Redondo to Nicolas González, from Cambiasso to Riquelme and from Sorin to José Pekerman. We’ll not only know about them all, but also about the history of the club, the link it has with the community, how it became so important and how Maradona made history there. All that with a beautiful and exclusive view of the pitch, the same piece of ground where Diego made his first appearance and sacred soil for Maradonians!
