Check out some fantastic Lisbon street art in the photos below! In this blog post I will discuss three interesting street art sites in Lisbon. Of course there is more street art to explore in Lisbon. Check out the map at the bottom of this blog post for more locations.

Pombal

The street art in this area is going all the way Av. Conselheiro Fernando de Sousa, Rua Marques de Fronteira and R. Artilharia 1. I love this realistic street art!

Some very talented graffiti artists brightened up this meters high big construction site wall.

The question is how long this will stay, as the wall may be torn down at some point. Better go & check it out soon!

Av. Conselheiro Fernando de Sousa includes the most beautiful and big street art of this area in Lisbon. Like this girl in the photo above.

Various styles can be distinguished in Lisbon street art. Tastes differ but for sure it’s colorful!

This street art area is close to the Four Seasons RitzHoliday Inn Lisboa Liberdade and metro station Marquês de Pombal. The glass container photo (left in below gallery) was taken close to the next area discussed in this blog post.

Picoas

This fantastic large Lisbon street art on the corner of Av. Fontes Pereira de Melo and Picoas metro station is already there for at least six years. This street art area is located near the Sheraton Lisboa Hotel & Spa.

Showing a great refined style, this graffiti artist obviously likes decorating large canvases in the form of abandoned apartment buildings.

Elevador da Gloria

The tiny yellow tram from promenade Av. da Liberdade up the hill to the bustling Bairro Alto is called Elevador da Gloria. During my first time in Lisbon in 2012, the street art around and at the top end of the tram line contained a bit of dark, grim graffiti, as shown in the photo gallery below.

This area still contains a lot of sloppy ‘tag’ street art, which is not my favorite to be honest. However, sometimes there are some new, really colorful and beautiful or funny pieces of art on the walls there that are worth checking out. The always surprising element street art!

Elevador da Gloria is on walking distance from NH Collection Lisboa Liberdade and Tivoli Avenida Liberdade Lisboa.

Map

Below map is mobile friendly and can be saved in the Google Maps app of your smartphone or tablet. There are multiple categories, just uncheck the other categories if you only would like to map the various Lisbon street art sites.  The map is indicative as street art can disappear (for example get overpainted) any given day and for sure the map is not 100% complete (I think that would be impossible).

My favorite?

Definitely this Angel piece by a graffiti artist called Styler!

Are you staying in Lisbon and would you like to make a day trip outside the city? Go to Sintra! Read all about it in my earlier blog post Sintra: the five Prettiest Palaces and Parks to visit on a day trip from Lisbon.
