Parque das Nacoes, Lisbon

4.1
#4 of 12 in Neighborhoods in Lisbon
Neighborhood Landmark
A contemporary, multipurpose space, Parque das Nacoes was the site of Expo 98. Before 1998, when the area was home to the World Exposition, it was an industrial zone that was not used for recreational, residential, or commercial purposes. The parish was rejuvenated after the event and is still referred to as Expo by many locals. Today you can walk along the area's promenade past several fountains and the park's waterfall. Tour the Lisbon Oceanarium, explore the Vasco da Gama shopping mall, or go to a show at the Atlantic Pavilion concert hall. The parish is also home to a large marina that has a pier for cruises, pontoon for events, and places to watch birds. Put Parque das Nacoes into our Lisbon family vacation planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

Where to stay in Lisbon

Check into one of Lisbon's grand city center hotels to position yourself well to explore the central historical districts on foot. To avoid the potentially high prices of some of the Old Town's central upscale hotels, try staying in a hostel instead. While some hostels have an upper age limit for their guests, they're affordable and oftentimes offer access to attractions on par with or better than bigger hotels. In the upper town, opt for one of the family-run bed and breakfasts, which provide affordable rooms and, as the name would suggest, include a meal as well.
