Street Art Cascais Lisboa

Giving the Urban Landscape a new visual

Everywhere you go in Cascais or Lisboa you can find some interesting murals or street art.  You may not notice them on the usual tourist route.  These hidden gems from talented artists are around for all to view. It takes creativity to another level.

The Muraliza Street Art Festival started by the Cascais Town Council in 2014 as an annual event.  The first edition of the Infinito Festival of Street Art took place in 2018. Artists from Portugal as well as from abroad participated.  You can find a large number of murals in the Cascais Bairro da Torre neighbourhood.  They give a new look to old tired walls, an open art gallery for everyone. Below is a sample.
