Rua Rodrigues Faria

LX Factory has one of the artiest walls in Lisbon, with works by Bordalo II, Pedro Zamith, Gonçalo Mar (aka Corleone), The Caver and maismenos. It is worth spending a good half an hour here to absorb them all.

Avenida Conselheiro Fernando de Sousa

Dozens of grafittis by artists from Portugal cover the Amoreiras wall of fame. Stop for a look on your way to Cascais or Campo de Ourique.

Avenida Fontes Pereira de Melo

The derelict city block on the corner with Rua Andrade Corvo served as a giant canvas for graffiti by Brazilian duo Os Gémeos, Sam3 from Spain, Italy’s Blu and Ericalcaine, and Lucy Mclauchlan from the UK. It helped put Lisbon on the map in street art terms.
