Oriente
This region os Lisbon, which hosted the world exhibition of 1998 (Expo 98), offers much to suit varied interests. Contrary to historical center, Parque das Našões attracts its visitors with its 21st century modern architecture.
From the coral reefs to the frozen waters of the South Pole, here you will find it all. Lisbon’s Oceanarium is one of the world’s largest aquariums. It brings together more than 25,000 specimens of high seas in 7,000,000 liters of salty water. It is enjoyed by both children and adults.
One of the most stunning modern sights in Lisbon is Oriente Station. It houses a railway station, a metro, and a bus terminal.
This newest bridge in Lisbon, Ponte Vasco da Gama, enables north-south traffic to bypass the Portuguese capital and was built as an alternative route to the 25 de Abril Bridge, frequently congested with traffic jams especially during the rush-hour periods.
The 140m-high Torre Vasco da Gama at the Parque das Našões has panoramic views of the park, river and city and Vasco da Gama Bridge. It is Lisbon’s tallest building.
The Cable Car provides an air trip over the whole of the Park of Nations, along the river Tagus.
Vasco de Gama Shopping Mall is located in the entrance of the Nations Park, between two striking twin towers designed to look like giant sailboats.
