Belém Cultural Centre

Situated in one of Lisbon’s most important historic quarters, the Centro Cultural de Belém is an emblematic cultural space.

This contemporary art centre comprises various temporary exhibition spaces and several concert and lecture halls, as well as a recreational and educational area specially dedicated to a younger audience. The cafeteria and its outdoor terrace afford a pleasant view over the River Tagus, which makes this one of the most popular leisure areas in the city.

It was built to serve as the headquarters for the Portuguese Presidency of the European Union in 1992, in keeping with a project designed by the Italian architect Vittorio Gregotti and the Portuguese architect Manuel Salgado.
