One of the former EXPO-areas that still lives: with bars, restaurants, walking-zones, cablecar (nice views!) and a huge shopping centre. easily conntected to the city with the metro (red line).

the Orient Railway Station and the shopping mall linked to it were built by the Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava, known for his structures like fish skeletons (imagine being Jonas insde the whale...). A wonderful piece of modern architecture, including the whole area around and along the seaside.

It is in the modern Lisbon, a place for everyone, tourists, shoppers. Places to relax or places to buy. You can also go and visit the Aquarium or the museum of science.

When arriving the Oriente Train Station we are provided with the contemporanean architecture of Lisbon, a place where so much was 'created' for Expo. Many things to visit there and wonderful to walk by.

The place is a bit out of the city centre, built on the old Expo site. It now consists of a combination of commercial, residential and tourist facilities. The design of the buildings are all modern but attractive. There is s lot of space for relaxation and shopping. In case you are tired of the old houses, the churches and... More

If you are looking for a quiet calming place head here. You come out of the metro into a busy train station/ mall. Head toward the ocean and take a leisurely stroll under the trees.great views. Beautiful architecture.

Neighborhood Profile
Parque das Nacoes
This neighborhood was built up at the end of the 1990s mostly because of the Expo '98. The pavilions and structures that once were the home of all the Expo's attractions and exhibits are still culturally and artistically significant. In Parque das Nações you'll explore conference and concert pavilions, a shopping center, trendy restaurants and an enjoyable cable car ride you can't miss out on. On top of this, the amazing Lisbon Oceanarium (one of the most spectacular things you'll ever see in the city) will take your breath away: its respect and will to preserve natural wildlife is uncanny. Easily accessible by metro, bus or taxi from the city center, Parque das Nações is highly recommended for anyone who'll spend more than 3 days in the Portuguese capital.
