"Vasco da Gama - go to Colombo instead!" Shopping centers and malls Tip by WardrobeMK

Shopping centers and malls, Lisbon: 56 reviews and 61 photos

  The shopping centre from the river side
by WardrobeMK

I go to Lisbon to shop mainly for clothes and accessories. I've been there so far 7 times (EDIT: May 2013) and visited both Colombo and Amoreiras shopping centres. This time I was going to Parque das Nações (huge park near the river Tagus in the north-east of the city) anyway so I decided to visit the Vasco da Gama Shopping Centre which is there.

It's got 156 shops and 35 restaurants. But clothes shops wise it's a bit boring and Colombo which is another big centre has all the same ones only bigger and better plus some that Vasco doesn't even have.

So my advise: for serious shopping go to Colombo, if you're visiting the park pop into Vasco. Vasco does have a huge Continente supermarket as well which is handy for all sorts.

NOTE: Taking photos is not permitted in any of the malls, the security guards will come and tell you off if you get your camera out.

My Colombo review: http://members.virtualtourist.com/m/p/m/1836e1

Address: Av. D. João II, Parque das Nações, Lisbon
Directions: The last stop on the Red line, Oriente station. Come out of the metro to the level where the ticket gates are, turn left and go up a couple of flights of escalators, the shopping centre is cross the road, can't miss it!
