Graffiti in Lisbon, did you know?

You know how we say that Rome is an open air museum? Well, no one ever said that to Lisbon, I know, but bear with me. 

Couldn’t we say that Lisbon is an open-air graffiti museum? Ok, just said it. 

If you take a closer look you will find lots of buildings all over the city centre with amazing graffiti art.
From beautiful pieces to political messages, and also pieces reminding us of our history. 

If you’ve been in Lisbon, quite a few times, and don’t remember seeing it, don’t blame yourself.
Next time you will definitely have a closer look.

In Mouraria you will find a few graffiti describing what fado music is all about:


You can also find, just fun stuff down on Bairro Alto:




Or appreciate Bordalo II’s work, made with garbage material:



Or Vhils work as well, he works mainly with explosives but this piece in particular honours Amália Rodrigues:




Or you can even see a more modern approach:

Investor from the USA

Ryan was an excellent real estate agent, he really steered me in the right direction based on what I said was important to me. Living in another country, I wasn't as familiar with the city as he is. Where I thought I wanted to live and what I truly wanted were not the same. He took the time to listen and figure out the best spot for me, and we are very happy with it - far more than we would have been elsewhere.

Investor from the USA

The overall experience was great from follow up to After Sales. I would like to give special thanks to Mr. Simon, Ms. Francisca and Ms. Mariana.

Investor from UAE

George Hobson is a pleasant young man, came across as knowledgeable, experienced, hardworking, honest & disciplined; I felt very comfortable in easily making my investment.

Investor from UAE

Luísa is a very understandable person, she knew exactly what we were looking for and even showed us and gave us more choices to pick from. Very professional advice, hospitality and service.

My property advisor, Mathew McGurn, was truly excellent! His knowledge, professionalism and attention to details was much appreciated. He worked hard to not only find a property that fit all my requirements, he negotiated successfully with agents making sure my offer won over other buyers bidding for the same property. In addition, his communication skills, prompt response time and general help with my getting settled in Portugal went above and beyond the normal.
