Attended a two-day conference here. Rooms were well appointed and the audio-visual systems worked well. The snacks and coffee provided by the venue were ok, but the tea not so. The staff were excellent, very helpful and attentive. The architecture is not very appealing, but it is a very functional space that is set out well.

"Culturgest" has an attractive entrance flanked by "reddish clay colour" brick walls. It has successive interesting art/ sculpture/ video instalations on show. Its ample space allows captivating lay outs for various types of exhibitions. "Culturgest" has also an Auditorium for concerts, theatre, conferences, etc. It is worth a visit.

They not to mind. The ugly outside inside you will be blown away good concerts and expos. And an incredible sci fi look, prepare to feel like a city within a building within a building(not a typo)

A regular eclectic mix of highbrow and popular music, great exhibitions and talks, at low prices or free. To check out what's on if you live or are in town for a few days.

The architecture of the building is terrible (but it works). The exhibitions are great. Not the artists super star, but really interesting artists lesser know. Miguel Wandschneider is doing a great job turning Culturgest in one of the most interesting places to see art in Europe. The bookshop is also great with a refined selection of art books and theory.

Culturgest makes really good cultural events. When in Lisbon, go the their website and see the programing for the period of time that you'd be here. The place is very close to the train station and even more close to the metro. It's a very big building that pops out in the place. When you get there you may think... More
