Torres das Amoreiras (Amoreiras Towers)

Discover one of the high points in Lisbon. Literally. Come and see the towers that shook up Portuguese architecture in the 1980s and one of the best shopping centres in the city.

The Torres das Amoreiras are one of the high points on the Lisbon skyline.

Located at the top of one of the city’s hills, their post-modernist architecture was extremely controversial when built in the 1980s.

The shape of their tops, designed to look like medieval helmets, marked a shift in the way of thinking about architecture in a city in which, until then, the word contemporary barely existed. Nowadays, it is unthinkable to land in Lisbon without catching a glimpse of the towers, part of the 1993 Valmor Award-winning complex, standing proudly at one end of the city. The three towers consist of offices and residential units and a shopping mall on its bottom floors.

This is Lisbon’s inner city mall and one of the busiest places in the city.

It’s worth dropping in to shop and to experience the hustle and bustle.
