Location and Surroundings:
The apartment is located in the tower called the Torre São Gabriel, and right next to the Vasco da Gama shopping mall and just 100 metres walk from the Gare de Oriente train and metro station. The building was completed in the year 2000, and is one of the best known buildings in Lisbon, with its distinctive shape representing a ship's bow. This is the heart of the Expo or Parque das Nações area, close to offices, shops, hotels, cafés, restaurants, transport and anything else you might need.
The Vasco da Gama shopping centre is located at the foot of the tower, and consists of dozens of establishments including a very large supermarket, clothes and electronics shops, different kinds of restaurants, cafés and other commerce. Towards the river, there is a waterfront esplanade with more restaurants and the cable car which takes you to the excellent Oceanarium. This is a lovely area to enjoy a walk by the river and enjoy the war weather.
The Parque das Nações is also a thriving business and entertainment area, with conferences, concerts and trade fairs taking place throughout the year in the nearby pavillions. Many large companies have their offices here and the area is full of good restaurants and terrace cafés.
The Expo has excellent transport links, with trains and metro at the afore-mentioned Orient station and several bus lines running along the main avenue. It is very easy to take a taxi from the line of cars waiting outside the shopping centre or the train station.
