Place of Interest Check location

Previously known as Pavilhão Atlântico and MEO Arena, the Altice Arena is the largest pavilion of shows in Portugal, and can receive up to 20,000 people. It was built in Parque das Nações at Expo98, with the designation of the Utopia Pavilion, and was recently renamed Altice Arena, after its main sponsor acquired the rights to the name.

The unique flying-saucer-like building was designed by the Portuguese architect Regino Cruz, who has also designed many other government buildings and offices in Portugal and Brazil.

The Altice Arena hosts many exciting events, from the UEFA Futsal Cup final to the MTV Europe Music Awards to the FIBA Under 19 World Championship and the WWE Smackdown. Some of the legendary musical performers who have sung here to cheering crowds include Elton John, Eric Clapton, Iron Maiden, Bon Jovi, Nirvana, Rolling Stones and many more.
