Lisbon Tourism presents the new Urban Art tour

The Portuguese capital was chosen by many Portuguese and international artists to be literally their canvas. The new promotional video of Turismo de Lisboa reflects this just by presenting the new Urban Art route that shows the real open-air works of art that are practically at every corner of the city.

Alta de Lisboa, Bairro Alto, Amadora, Loures, Entrecampos, Marvila, Parque das Nações, Monsanto and Barreiro are some of the places present in the video that makes Lisbon known from the perspective of Public and Urban Art, in the eyes of artists who have been sculpting, painting, drawing and coloring. Some of them, present in the video, such as Vhils, PichiAvo or Bordallo II, have a national and international recognition, with numerous exhibitions in their own name.

In the campaign “Encontrei Lisboa“, promoted by the Regional Tourism Entity of the Lisbon Region and Lisbon Tourism Association, you can get to know better the various urban art routes that exist in Lisbon, through the purchase of this route, which costs 20€.
