Mix of commercial and residential
Advancing north from cosy and more residential São Bento, Campo d´Ourique and Estrela, you end up in Amoreiras - a primarily commercial district, dominated by iconic Amoreiras Commercial Center, a modernist architectural heritage of mid-eighties. The main building is home to the exclusive shopping centre with many exclusive brands and two Amoreiras towers host numerous company headquarters. Amoreiras also has a rather good selection of hotels, spas and accompanying facilities for visiting business people. Worth visiting in the vicinity is the 18th-century Águas Livres Aqueduct ending in the Amoreiras area.
As for real estate, the area can offer traditional Lisbon buildings and mansions, and increasing number of modern builds, often including parking places or garages, both for residential and commercial purposes. The proximity of many public transportation lines, the shopping centre, number of other amenities and other peaceful gateways makes this area very practical for busy working middle-to-upper class.
