Vasco da Gama Tower Tours

12 Reviews
Lisbon’s tallest building soars 145 meters above the Tagus River waterfront and it’s an impressive feat of engineering, with its lattice steelwork inspired by the sail of a Portuguese caravel ship. The Tower takes its name from legendary Portuguese explorer, Vasco da Gama, and was built for the World Expo in 1998, when it served as an observation deck.

Today, the Vasco da Gama Tower is home to the luxurious 5-star Myriad hotel and is closed to the public, but non-guests can still ride the Parque das Nacoes cable car from the tower to the nearby Oceanarium and enjoy spectacular views over the riverfront. The Tower also forms part of the modern Parque das Nações complex, which stretches along the waterfront and includes the Lisbon Oceanarium, the Pavilion of Knowledge science museum, the Atlantic Pavilion concert venue, Lisbon Casino and the huge Vasco Da Gama shopping mall, along with a strip of bars, restaurants and nightclubs.

The Vasco da Gama Tower is located in the Parque das Nações complex on the banks of the Tagus River and is accessible only to guests of the Myriad hotel or restaurant.
