How to get to Estadio Comendador Joaquim de Almeida Freitas
Estádio Comendador Joaquim de Almeida Freitas is located in the small village of Moreira de Conegos, which is located in the north of Portugal near the city of Guimaraes. The stadium lies about 9 kilometres south-west from Guimaraes’ city centre.
The stadium is located a 15-minute walk uphill from train station Cuca with trains running from Porto Sao Bento and Porto Campanha stations, and Guimaraes.

The journey from Guimaraes takes about 15 minutes, that from Porto just under an hour.
