About
CAMPO PEQUENO Campo Pequeno is one of the most iconic monuments of the city of Lisbon and of Portugal. Considered one the most important buildings of Neo-Arabic style in the country, it was designed by Architect José Dias da Silva and ranks among the most beautiful bullrings in the world, having opened its doors on the 18th of August 1892. The monument is classified as a building of Public Interest. The history of Campo Pequeno's Bullring crosses paths with the history of Tauromachy. The building underwent deep restoration works, between 2000 and 2006, under the responsibility of Architect José Bruschy, becoming a major and modern multi-purpose space, able to accommodate, besides bullfights, a vast array of other events. It was also complemented with a commercial galleria, cinemas, restaurants and parking area. Schedule: Shopping Centre: every day from 10am to 11pm. Closed on Christmas day and on New Year. Parking Area: open 24H.

This is a very beautiful and historic building, dating back to the 19th century... originally a bullfighting stadium, but that's no longer the case, fortunately!

Campo Pequeno is a bullfighting arena in Lisbon. It is located in Campo Pequeno Square, on Avenida da Republica. After a thorough modernization, the facility was reopened in 2006 as a venue for various cultural events and concerts in addition to bullfighting. Campo Pequeno has restaurants and an underground shopping center with parking. Campo Pequeno was built between 1890 and 1892 under the supervision of the Portuguese architect Antonio Jose Dias da Silva.
Amazing architecture.

Small but interesting museum detailing the history and traditions of Portugese bullfighting. Cristina guided us round and was most welcoming and knowledgeable.

This is a nice structure with nice stores and good foodcourt. Although they did not have the bull fight in March, the shops made up for it.

The bull fighting palace is beautiful on the outside. Inside it is used for different events beside bull fights. Went to a chocolate festival there last year. Movie theater underground.

This is the old bullfighting ring in Lisbon which is still in use (for bullfights, but the bull is apparently not killed). It is now also used for concerts and shows. The building dates from around 1890, with the roof dominated by exquisite blue domes, but has been extensively recently renovated. It is a superb example of the architecture of the time and well worth the effort to visit. It is also worth visiting for the local shopping centre attached to it, cheaper stuff than in the centre of the city where all the tourists are. We couldn't see many tourists when we visited, despite it being in the middle of the day.

What a venue for a rock gig! If you want to spend a few days in a beautiful European city and see a band while you are there, find out about future concerts in Campo Pequeno. Wonderful building and a great atmosphere

I could not watch a bullfight but on my first full day in Lisbon I thought it might be interesting to see what a bullring looks like and I was really impressed. It was actually one of my favourite sights in Lisbon and I really walked some miles in my trip eventually seeing most of the city. Strangely I was the only tourist there approaching lunchtime whereas the other attractions had hoards of tourists present. There is also a shopping centre underneath which I walked around and bought my lunch and many other food items but this shopping centre did not seem as plush as the other huge modern shopping centres in Lisbon and on the outskirts.

Nice, but not very impactful. The place now used as a shopping center, is a bull racing field, a very important "sporting" activity in neighboring Spain, but in decay in Portugal. It has half a dozen well-known stores, a few bazaars, a standard dining area and two or three nice outdoor restaurants.

Thank you for your comment. Campo Pequeno is now a concert hall that hosts all kinds of events: music, musical theater, corporate events, markets and fairs and also bullfighting. We also have a shooping center and parking. We hope you will visit us in the next opportunity!
