The Estádio da Luz is a multi-purpose stadium located in Lisbon, Portugal. It is commonly translated to English as "Stadium of Light", although inaccurately, as Luz refers not to "light" but to the original address of the stadium: Estrada da Luz.

The stadium is used mostly for football matches, hosting the home matches of Portuguese club S.L. Benfica, which is the owner. It is sometimes referred to as A Catedral (The Cathedral) or O Inferno da Luz.
