Marvila (002)
Marvila Geral 2


Marvila is the neighbourhood to watch in Lisbon. Located on the riverfront, between downtown and the modern Parque das Nações district, it’s undergoing a cultural regeneration. From the 1800s onwards, it was the manufacturing heart of Lisbon.

These started to close towards the end of the late 20th century, and in the last few years artists and investors have recognized the potential of these spaces, transforming them into galleries, restaurants, and craft breweries.

Today, Marvila in Lisbon is described as the equivalent of what Brooklyn is to New York City, or Shoreditch is to London. It is a district rich in architectural heritage, and reinventing itself with new and engaging movements in arts and culture.

Marvila leads the way in innovation, artistic expression and as a thriving hub for creativity. Even though the area has some of the most impressive street art murals you will come across in Lisbon, it’s not only aesthetics in Marvila; there’s plenty of substance to sustain the growth of what’s becoming one of the most exciting areas in the Portuguese capital. 

Besides celebrated craft beer taprooms, contemporary art galleries and alternative design stores, Marvila is also the home of Hub Criativo do Beato, a massive hub for startups and entrepreneurs housed in a former factory complex and that has started to welcome international companies in the fields of technology, innovation and creative industries.
