There's a view of 360 degrees over Lisbon from the top of the Amoreiras shopping mall
The Amoreiras towers and its shopping mall opened in 1985, but it was only possible to visit the top and enjoy the beautiful panoramic 360º view in 2016. Two benches, three telescopes and two maps pointing out the most important landmarks (from the castle to the Royal Palace of Ajuda, and even the airport) are scattered around the terrace on the 18th floor, reached by an elevator on the second floor of the mall.
View of the castle and of several of the arches of the aqueduct
It opens every day at 10AM, closing for lunch (12:30PM to 2:30PM) from Monday to Friday. During the autumn and winter months it closes at 6PM, while in spring and summer it remains open until 10PM.
The river and many of the city's monuments can be admired from the observation deck
The Amoreiras Shopping Center was Lisbon’s first major mall and remains a favorite. While Colombo eventually surpassed it in size and Centro Vasco da Gama in Parque das Nações is more popular, Amoreiras has more of an exclusive feel. In total there are over 275 retail spaces, including restaurants and a multiplex cinema.
The glass towers of the Amoreiras complex
This rest of the Amoreiras complex, which is made up of three mirrored towers, houses offices and luxury apartments. It was quite a controversial construction in the 1980s, due to its colossal post-modern style.
You can see all the way to the airport from the top of the tower
