Shopping in Lisbon – El Corte Ingles

Shopping in Lisbon - El Corte Ingles

Traveling to Portugal, be it for business or for pleasure, is an excellent idea, one which we encourage you do especially in the months of spring, a bit… protected, let’s say, from the boisterous months of high season (in summer). One of the reasons many choose to come to the country’s capital city is shopping in Lisbon – El Corte Ingles is one of the best shopping centers in town.

What to do in El Corte Ingles? This is a nice question with an ample answer. El Corte Ingles is a vast Spanish-owned department store, whose largest branch happens to be located in Lisbon. It spans over nine stories and includes not only a wide range of brand shops, but also other entertainment options.

Among the leading designer brands that are represented in this upscale shopping mall, count Hugo Boss, Burberry, Escada, Longchamp, Jaeger-LeCoultre Ralph Lauren, Versace, Gucci, Bvulgari and Carolina Herrera. You can also get the ultimate (free!) make-up session at Chanel, Lancome, MAC or Dior.

Electronics, appliances, CDs, music and a bookstore are also featured.

Many choose El Corte Ingles as a weekend day out for its exquisite gourmet shop, Club del Gourmet. Homemade traditional sweets and dishes, as well as vintage alcoholic beverages compose the ample stock of this appealing shop.

If your tastes are different, you can opt for one of the restaurants and cafes in the mall. We especially recommend the top floor restaurant which has a lovely terrace).

You can also enjoy a good movie with your friends or family at the 14-screen amazing cinema in the mall.
