Parque das Nações -Lisboa

As promised (some time ago, I admit) today I’m going to show you a part of Lisbon.But I realised that I only had a couple of good photos.Sorry about that.

This is not one of the oldest or more typical parts of the city, quite the contrary.But cities are always evolving and I want to believe that a city I love so much can adapt continuously and look to the future along with the past.

In the year of 1998 it was held in Lisbon the Universal Exibithion.The place where everything was going to take place was a place north of the city and that was used as a docking place.Although people were not happy because they could not take advantage of the riverside they were also not very happy with the amount of money that was going to be spent in this enterprise.

Turns out that the Expo98 was a big success and the city gained a new place where people can entertain themselves in many different ways and many people live there now.


In this picture you can see the dome of the multi-purposes pavilion and a couple of the many restaurants that exist along the river.

On the left the big tower belongs to a shopping mall that I didn’t take pictures of.

There is also other pavilions dedicated to science and new technologies and the Oceanario where you can almost get into the ocean and swim with the fishes

and also with the people who take care of the aquarium 🙂

This is a bright and fresh place to visit if you ever travel to Lisbon.And because I feel so guilty about the lack of photos I leave here the homepage.It,s worth taking a look.
