This bullring is in Campo Pequeno, it's a building of great beauty in neo-Moorish style, with domes and towers similar to those of the mosques, it's 80 meters in diameter and 5,000 square meters. At first it was only used for bullfighting, but starting in the 90s they began restoring and enabling commercial spaces. Currently it has an entertainment room with a capacity for 10,000 people in the underground level and circulating the square there's a large shopping arcade with 60 shops, restaurants, bars, supermarket, 8 cinemas and parking for 1,250 vehicles and, of course, bullfights still take place May-September.
The Festas do Mar Cascais takes place every year for a few weeks of August, and is an event well worth visiting! The first thing to note is the price (free!), and there are all kinds of concerts and shows to suit every different taste. In 2012, for example, some headliners were Pedro Abrunhosa, Mikkael Solnado, Andre Sardet, Ronan Keating, and Rui Veloso. There are always performances by Cascais garage bands, thus helping to promote the local talent. In addition to the concerts, it's a beautiful place to visit and explore on foot, with plenty of great food and drink, crafts, promotion events, music, entertainment, and a great fireworks display. Watching concerts with your feet in the sand, and the beautiful Bay of Cascais as a backdrop is just amazing!
