The choice of shopping and what to buy in Lisbon is enhanced by some excellent shopping centres and malls sited in and around the city – shops, boutiques, supermarkets and department stores all found under one roof. One of the most attractive places to shop is the Centro Vasco da Gama, located at Parque das Nações east of the city centre. The biggest shopping centre in Lisbon is Colombo Shopping over in Benfica. In fact, this is one of the largest malls in the Iberian Peninsula. More conveniently situated for shopping in Lisbon is the upmarket El Corte Inglés, positioned near Parque Eduardo VII. The eye-catching Campo Pequeno Food Hall and Shopping Mall is housed within the Portuguese capital’s historic bullring, which also doubles up as a concert venue. Another quirky mall destination is Embaixada, set in a former palace building in Principe Real. The postmodernist styled Amoreiras Shopping Centre is the grand dame of Lisbon shopping centres and has been catering for customers since the mid-‘80s. Probably the most conveniently placed shopping mall for visitors is the centrally located Armazens do Chiado, located in the heart of Lisbon’s elegant Chiado district. If you’re staying in and around the city’s Saldanha area, Atrium Saldanha is a useful place to shop for branded items, and there’s also a convenient lunchtime food hall. But if you’re exploring out of town near Paço de Arcos, Oeiras Parque will meet all your shopping needs. Likewise, if you’ve based yourself along the Lisbon coast at Cascais, you can stock up with all you need at the sprawling CascaiShopping, located inland from the resort.
