The Cultural Center of Belem was built in 1988, designed by Vittorio Gregotti and Manuel Salgado, to host the Portuguese presidency of the EU in 1992. It is a wonderful center, with a lot of different cultural events, exhibition and activities.

A fascinating architectural space with a superb (free!) international modern art museum spanning 1900-1990. Browse a stunning collection unhindered by the tourist masses and then relax in the on-site cafes which are largely used by locals.

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
Planning on attending a classical music recital in the Grande Auditorio this weekend. Is there a dress code? Wanted to find out if formal attire is common at concerts like these or whether a blazer / no-tie is more appropriate.
