One of the things which struck me when I first arrived in Lisbon was how much street art the city had. Most of the street art can be found on the side of buildings and you don’t have to walk far to find colourful, thought-provoking and sometimes funny murals. Whilst walking back to my Airbnb from a Pingo Dolce supermarket in the Graça neighbourhood of Lisbon I came across some amazing pieces of street art and so I hastily took my camera out to capture them.
One area in Lisbon where you can see a lot of street art is the LX Factory in the Alcantara district of the city. There are plenty of shops to stroll into and restaurants to while away time in, but I loved just having a wonder and looking at the different murals on display in the area.
Like many other European cities, Lisbon has a thriving street art scene. You’ll often find street art whilst you make your way around the city to take in the sites or grab a bite to eat, just make sure you stop and take a good look at your surroundings once in a while otherwise you may miss it!
A snap of a mural I saw when walking to Café de São Bento from the Jardim de São Bento which I managed to take before my battery died.
