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:

It's fantastic how Ryan had complete knowledge regarding Lisbon and dealt with us in a great manner.

Akbar Ali - Investor from Pakistan

Ryan is very professional, but also friendly and knowledgeable about the Golden Visa market. He was also flexible as travelled from the Algarve to meet me in Lisbon to stand in for 1 colleague at short notice.

Investor from UK

Portugal Homes did a great job keeping me up to date with progress on my new home construction purchase by providing regular and comprehensive reports. This helped to ease anxieties about doing a home purchase in the midst of a global pandemic.

Investor from the USA

Although through Zoom, we established great confidence in George's integrity. [It was] important for us to have confidence in the staff's ability to feel aligned in views.

Donald Collie from Australia

The process was very quick and clear. I got all the information I needed in the first hour. The experience was perfect.

Tomoko Inoue from Japan

Overwhelming. Luisa has exceeded our expectations on all levels. Trust was established immediately. Enhanced by super friendly professionalism. The networks to banks, accountants, lawyers was seamless. there is not enough space here to write all the positives, enough to say we are making an offer and we only arrived 4 days ago. Its impossible to improve from perfection!
