UPTOWN LISBON

Admiring outstanding art or going on a shopping spree

Uptown Lisbon is mainly a business and residential area dominated by large 20th century office blocks and apartment buildings. While this may not exactly attract tourist attention, these broad avenues are home to some great museums, including the outstanding Gulbenkian.

Entrecampos It is also home to most of the city's shopping malls, including one of the largest in Europe, Colombo and the post-modern Amoreiras.

Around Saldanha Square are two other smaller malls facing Avenida da Republica, the location of one of the city's most attractive cafes, Cafe Versailles, and close to the acclaimed Anastacio Gonçalves Museum.

Farther away (best reached by taxi) is the delightful Fronteira Palace with its beautiful tilework and romantic gardens.

Also an impressive sight is the 18th century Aqueduct, considered one of the most remarkable hydraulic engineering achievements of all time.
