LX Factory art district : Lisbon Portugal

Lisbon is a great city with lots of interesting areas offering a wide variety of attractions. One interesting area that’s a bit different from all the architectural historical tourist areas of Lisbon is the funky LX Factory art area, a former factory located under the industrial bridge connecting to the other side of the river, now hosting galleries, book shops, cafes, restaurants, pubs, and markets. The day I was visiting the weather was pretty bad, raining and somewhat gloomy, but there was plenty to see and do inside. So I was just wondering around and enjoyed a great bookshop with a local inventor showcasing his weird inventions on the upper floor, a local market in a large hall, and lots of little shops and cafes.

A great area to spend a few hours, especially if it’s raining outside and you want to explore some local art galleries.
