The Belém Cultural Centre was conceived with the goal of housing the portuguese presidency of the European Community, in 1992, and then to become a prime cultural spot with space for different kinds of activities.

Its inauguration occurred in 1993 on the same location where the Discoveries ships departured. It was designed by the portuguese architect Manuel Salgado. The Belém Cultural Centre includes the Meeting Centre, the Concert Hall and the Exhibition Centre.

Many artists have been crossing this Centre’s stage as well as exhibiting their work of arts or even crossed this space for interesting debates and conferences. Since June 2007 it houses the permanent Berardo Collection Museum.

On weekends, this centre is filled with visitors who are seeking not only for the permanent exhibitions yet also to observe street artists, actors and others.

The Belém Cultural Centre also has a cafeteria with a nice terrace, WI-FI and privileged view over the Tagus River.
