Centro Comercial do Campo Pequeno
Shopping center, supermarket, fast food, cinemas, and a very nice shop "Portugal dos Meus Amores" to buy a special souvenir from Portugal
Lisbon's bullfighting arena is much more than that. It's a 19th century neo-Moorish construction made up of red brick and arches where bullfighting still takes place every Thursday from Easter to October, but it's actually more of a stage for major concerts of national and international bands…
Lots to see, lovely bull ring, good food hall and easy access for disabled. Lots of shops and a cheap supermarket.
Lisbon´s old bullfight arena, which is now converted to a shopping gallery and a events venue (concerts, etc).
“Quando pensar no maior património bibliográfico de Portugal, pense em Biblioteca Nacional, esse projecto arquitectónico de Porfírio Pardal Monteiro. Fica na Cidade Universitária de Lisboa, no Campo Grande, para onde se mudou no Estado Novo devido à exiguidade do Convento de São Francisco, anterior morada. Na verdade, fique a saber que a biblioteca é bem mais antiga — remonta a 1796, e chamava-se então Real Biblioteca Pública da Corte. 13 é o número de andares da Torre dos Depósitos, a guardiã de todos esses livros, arquivos, jornais, revistas e partituras. Apareça, porque há sempre uma curiosa exposição à sua espera. ”
Point of Interest
“The Mercado Alvalade Norte was featured by Anthony Bourdain in his food show “No Reservations” when he was in Lisbon. He went there with a famous restaurant Chef and a few days later, daily markets became trendy again. (Thank you!) This market is located near the Avenida da Igreja at Alvalade quarter. Here, instead of packed “pre-frozen” fruit, you can get real produce straight from the farmers. Now, that things are changing and we are getting a little more demanding with our food choices, this is definitely a good choice. It’s not only cheaper to buy here, but it’s definitely better. The Alvalade Market is a large market featuring all types of food from fish and seafood to fabulous fruits – and the best is that the great majority are local produce from local farmers. Here you’ll also find the famous dried codfish, a very popular fish in Portugal. There are also several bakeries with fresh baked bread. Have some fun and check it out!”
“There are plenty of pastry in Avenida da Igreja, although this one opens at 5.am in the morning and has the best pastries and cakes. Perfect for the morning breakfast :)”
