For architectural enthusiasts, this is a must-do. This station was built to commemorate the World Expo and Portugal got none other than the maestro Santiago Calatrava to design this zoomorphic train station. It simply looks otherworldly and stunning. Yes, it might be dirtier now but...More

Parque das Nacoes
This neighborhood was built up at the end of the 1990s
mostly because of the Expo '98. The pavilions and
structures that once were the home of all the Expo's
attractions and exhibits are still culturally and
artistically significant. In Parque das Nações you'll
explore conference and concert pavilions, a shopping
center, trendy restaurants and an enjoyable cable car
ride you can't miss out on. On top of this, the
