Soccer fans in Spain have found their own Mecca, the place where pilgrims pay homage to their particular football gods. Since last December 2010 the town of Las Rozas hosts the Museum of Spanish football.

The entrance fee for adults is 12 Euros for children  the rate is fixed at 8 Euros. The museum can be visited from Tuesday to Sunday from 10 to 19.

This temple of football, created by the Royal Spanish Football Federation under the supervision of renowned art collector Paul Ornaque presents a review of the history of Spanish football, from its beginnings to its last great feats such as the 2008 European Championship and the 2010 World Cup won by Vicente Del Bosque’s men in South Africa.

Among the trophies that can be admired is also the gold medal won by Spain in the Barcelona Olympics in 1992.

The history of the Spanish team starts August 28, 1920, the date on which 11 admired players (Zamora, Belauste, Arrate, Acedo …) were the first to defend Spain. This team beat Denmark 1-0 at the Estadio de La Butte in Brussels, in the 7th modern Olympic Games,
