LISBON Shopping Mall FIRST IMPRESSIONS, Centro Vasco Da Gama

We’ve been looking at things to do in Lisbon and one idea was a day trip to Centro Vasco Da Gama shopping Mall. J’s mum needed a good pair of shoes and wanted a Sketchers store, Lisbon’s shopping malls had a dedicated shop with a large range.
We drove from the silver coast where we live in Caldas da rainha and the journey time was 1 hour each way. We weren’t sure how much the parking cost was going to be, but we parked at Centro Vasco Da Gama’s underground car park and was extremely surprised at how inexpensive it was. 3.40 Euros for 3 hours 45 minutes parking at one of Lisbon’s best shopping malls. That’s pretty amazing!
We also took a walk around parque das nações so Story could have a break from the shops and we enjoyed the sunshine at a local Starbucks cafe where we also indulged ourselves and bought a Vegan cake and 3 bags of coffee beans.
Overall our full day shopping in Lisbon was pretty great, and our first impressions of our time there are really good. We recommend this mall. 🙂
