I can get informations on, for example, a stadium


out body;
out skel qt;

But is there a way to get its entrance too (osm tag : entrance=main) ?

I think there is something better than the "around" command, but what... ?

  • Have you tried "node"?

  • It does'nt work because I search the stadium by its name, and the entrance doesn't have a name key.

  • Maybe the stadiums entrance has not been uploaded to OSM yet?

You need an area query to find entry=main node inside your stadium way. This doesn't work for every way (it depends on specific Area Creation Rules on the Overpass API server), but your example is just fine:

way(266223964);out geom;

Try it in overpass turbo: http://overpass-turbo.eu/s/AuG

map_to_area maps the way id to the respective area id, to be used for the later area query. That's basically a query to return all nodes inside an area.

    Thank you, that's what I need. And if it doesn't work because of the area type, I still can use an already known polygon with node[entrance=main](poly:“..."). I discovered that after searching more info on map_to_area.
