Another very popular shopping center in Lisbon is certainly El Corto Ingles. El Corto Ingles is a giant Spanish chain of department stores that you can see in Barcelona and Madrid, and it also has branches in Portugal. The first El Corte Ingles store has existed in Lisbon since 2001. It is located in the most exclusive shopping zone in Lisbon, on the Freedom Avenue, so expect higher prices in this shopping center, but something can still be found for everyone’s pocket.
It contains a large number of international brands, shops with technology, shops with decorative items, perfumes and cosmetics, children's shops, sports shops, bookstores, very good restaurants, cafeterias, pastry shop, supermarket, specialty shops, cinema, and at the top there is an open terrace.
The name itself, El Corto Ingles in translation means "cut to size". The brand was created thanks to founder Ramon Areces, who bought a small tailoring shop in Madrid in the 1930s, where his business rise began.
Some of the brands you can find here are: Adidas, Boss, Calvin Klein, Carolina Herrera, Desiqual, Diesel, DKNY, Esprit, Geox, Glove story, Gucci, Guess, Hugo Boss, Cavalli, Kenzo, Levis, Marta Ponti, MCQ, Pepe Jeans, Polo Ralph Lauren, Tommy Hilfiger, Vero Moda, Burberry etc.
You are able to find everything you need in one place, and in addition you will enjoy a very pleasant ambience and good atmosphere.
