Sea, sun and shopping
The Aqua Portimão shopping center opened in April 2011 and is the largest in the Western Algarve, a very popular tourist destination now enjoying significant demographic and economic growth. The shopping center has attracted the first H&M and Primark stores in the south of Portugal. Its powerful mix of 120 retailers is proving irresistible to the 220,000 locals and 900,000 tourists within its 20-kilometer catchment area. Aqua Portimão has opted for an uncompromisingly contemporary design on three levels, creating a building that’s big on planting and open spaces, and crowned with a superb sun-soaked food court terrace.
