Lionel Messi Circuit

This tour takes you around the most important places in the life of the player.

Lionel Messi was born in June 24th, 1987, in Hospital Italiano Garibaldi in Rosario. His birth established the city as the place that would tie him to his loved ones forever. Rosario is where his friends, relatives, and passions are. Here, he can take a break from being a superstar and give way to the spirit he humbly shows in every game —that of a neighborhood guy. 
The tour features the most important places in Leo’s life, along with stories recalling the years he lived in Rosario.


 We'd like to thank the collaborators who helped in the creation of the circuit: Micaela Pereyra, members of El Campito club, Andrés Preumayr, Agustín Ruani, Viviana Kosciuk, and Andrea Sosa.
