Built in 1892, the Campo Pequeno building underwent a thorough restoration work in the early 21st century. Identified as a Public Interest Building by law on January 24th, 1983, the works respected the building characteristics and it has maintained it’s original visual aspect over time. A shopping centre was created in the basement, the Mall of Campo Pequeno, and some commercial spaces on the ground floor. The decision to include a removable cover was the most significant changes that made the square a very versatile space that has been and continues to be the chosen venue for many cultural events and concerts not to be missed.
