The biggest shopping mall of the Iberian Peninsula, with more then 420 shops. Many times quantity doesn't mean quality, but Colombo has both!
It includes about 60 restaurants, 10 movie theaters, an health club and a covered amusement park.
It is open everyday from 10am to 12pm.
What to buy Everything you can imagine.
This shop provides large enough selection of local food and drink with affordable prices. If you don't want to go to El Cortes Ingles, this is a good and central alternative.
What to buy dried bacalhau, they will cut it to fit in baggage
small selection of portwines
This shopping centre contains a lot of luxurious shops with clothes, perfume, interior, leathergoods and theres even a cinema with 10 halls.
Because it's situated outside the citycentre it's not overcrowded with tourists.
What to buy Luxerious clothes
We were told, that the Portuguese (or maybe just the people on Lisbon) really LOVED their shopping centers - and so you can find those centers all over the place! And there are even more centers to be opened in the future!!!
The huge shopping mall in the picture is in Parque das Nacoes, the Ex-EXPO-area.
We aren´t so much shopping-kind of people,so we are wrong people to say if this was food shopping-centre or not.Shops were little too typical for us.Nothing so personal.
There is also lots of snack-food places there.My husband who loves ice-cream,loved the place selling crepes with ice-cream.It was upstairs,close to KFC,Mc Donalds and other ones.
What to buy clothes?Check the web-site,so you´ll know what they have.
I visit Lisbon (been 7 times, May 2013) to shop for ladies clothes, shoes and accessories.
See my review of COLOMBO shopping centre here: http://members.virtualtourist.com/m/p/m/1836e1
I also visit the AMOREIRAS shopping centre
6 anchor stores
It also has
2 Beauty centres
Situated at the top of the hill from Marques De Pombal at the top end of Av. Eng. Duarte Pacheco it's easy to get to: all of the buses from around the Marques roundabout go there!
I usually catch bus 783
from this stop
Amoreiras is the last stop of this line, the bus stop is situated just before the mall (cross over the road from the stop and the shopping centre is right in front of you slightly to the right.)
Also all of the buses coming back leave from outside Amoreiras from this stop
and drive down the hill and stop at the Marques De Pombal metro station. For some reason 783 has been removed from this stop but all of the others go to Pombal.
Stores at Amoreiras
this is one of the biggest shopping malls that exist in europe. according to my taste it is actually a little too large. but anyway: the easiest way to get there is to take the blue metro line until the station "colégio militar".
if you are would like to find other shopping opportunities, visit this website: http://www.lisboacomercial.com/ I have been to the mall "vasco da gama" which is located at the other end of the city and I can recommend it. to get there you should take the red metro line until the very last station that is called "oriente"
This shopping mall is in the Expo zone. During the exposition it was one of the entries.
This mall is quite pleasant, with a maritime theme. Notice the water running in the glass ceilings, you can frequently spot seagulls there looking down to people!
If you want a shopping center which as almost everything you can't miss "Colombo".
It's one of the biggest malls in Europe.
Almost every international fashion store is there.
What to buy Clothes, furniture, cosmetics, toys, books, cds, dvds, software, candles, shoes, ... and also restaurants, snack-bars, cinemas, fun area, etc.
What to pay You have prices for all tastes!!
This used to be Europe's biggest mall. It has a hughe play hall for kids with even a rollercoaster. The shops are a lot and all different kinds. You can also eat there. Shop shop shop till you drop.
What to buy One can buy almost anything one can think of.
What to pay expect to spend the same as anywhere else. These malls are pretty european standard... same prices and same goods.
We bought some wine and coffee at the grocery store in the mall. The store was very large and offered a large selection of grocery items, prepared foods and regular groceries. The mall was 3 stories with stores, movie theater and restaurants. We had lunch at a restaurant in the mall. The food was very good, delicious and not very expensive. We had tapas, baked cod, wine and coke zero. There was restaurant seating indoors and outdoors.
During my stay in Lisbon it rained a lot. When I decided to visit the new area around Oriente station I practically could not avoid going inside the Vasco de Gama mall as it was the only warm and dry place where to wait for the weather to get any better. It is a big mall with many shops and also many public chairs where to sit and read something if you have nothing to buy nor you like stand in front of shopping windows.
