Considered a turning point for Lisbon and Portugal, from May 2 to September 30, 1998, the event attracted around 11 million visitors.  EXPO’98 also had as its purpose to highlight the 500 years of the Portuguese Discoveries.

The importance of EXPO’98 did not stop there:

  • It was a strategic project for the country and culminated with the regeneration of an area of about 340 hectares in the eastern part of the city, next to the Tagus River.
  • Attended by 146 countries and 14 international organizations.
