Street Art Lisbon

Lisbon is a popular tourist destination for many reasons; it is steeped in the irresistible charm of times past with magnificent palaces and monasteries, picturesque alleyways and staircases, pretty corners and sleepy squares. That’s not all though: Lisbon has another side that is dynamic, modern and cosmopolitan. Young hipsters party in the smart riverbank clubs and restaurants or get their kicks from bar-hopping in the party neighbourhood of Bairro Alto and in the lively port quarter of Cais de Sodré.

Lisbon today represents a melting pot of cultures. Lisboa (pronounced “lishbóa”) in Portuguese – is both metropolitan and provincial, multicultural and open to the world, welcoming and relaxed. “Live and let live” is the motto here.

For that reason, among others, the street art scene is bursting with talent. Love it or hate it, street art is art… and it’s here to stay! Here are the street art highlights of Portugal’s capital:
