The Colombo Shopping Centre was inaugurated on September 29, 1997, has 427 stores and 120 thousand square meters, and thus the largest commercial center of Europe.

The architecture of the area is based on the time of the Portuguese Discoveries, one of the most important periods of history of Portugal. The squares and streets in the center have names depicting it, such as Avenue of Discovery and Square Tropic of Cancer. It has quite trade, as a kind of private city.

I love the contrast of a strong Poseidon and playful Minnie Mouse in the same shot! The first photo reminds me of a crystal. A quite beautiful mall.
