Certainly, one of the more unusual destinations to shop, the subterranean food court and mall at Campo Pequeno lies under the city's bullring, a Lisbon landmark and an architectural gem that dates back to 1892. Built in a Moorish style and characterized by the onion-top cupolas crowning it's four towers, the eye-catching arena is also a concert venue, replete with a retractable ceiling, that can accommodate 9,000 spectators. Hidden away is a supermarket, an attractive mall lined with shops and boutiques and several restaurants serving anything from sushi and pasta to burgers and crepes. An unusual feature is a museum dedicated to the history of Campo Pequeno's bullring and Portuguese bullfighting. A multiplex cinema screens the latest Hollywood blockbusters in their original language. There's also parking space for 1,200 vehicles.
- Shopping Malls and Centers: "During the summer's bullfighting season parking is almost impossible and the mall can get seriously claustrophobic."
- Best for Shopping Malls and Centers Because: Despite the obvious link with bullfighting, which many people have issues with, Campo Pequeno is worth exploring simply for its history and harmonious design.
