The Feira da Ladra is a composite portrait of the city

Rather than a city of culture, Lisbon is a city of cultures, making sure that these influences reach all of its corners in their more varied artistic manifestations, whether they be erudite or popular.

So, for those who like arts and crafts in general, antiques and bric-a-brac, the street markets, the Feira da Ladra flea market and some used bookstores are excellent options for getting distinctive souvenirs and memories of Portugal past and present.

For lovers of expositions, the CCB, the Gulbenkian Foundation and the Museum of Ancient Art are three obligatory visits, in as much as they not only always have excellent programs but also have a café worthy of the charms of their gardens.

Although more towards the outskirts, the LX Factory and the Braço de Prata are two former factories (connected to the canning and armaments industries respectively) that have been turned into spaces for diverse activities like: the sale of books and paintings, painting ateliers, concerts, poetry sessions, dance performances, among others.

If you want a more musical itinerary, besides the initiatives that run all year round, you shouldn’t miss events like the Lisbon Dance Festival, Nós Alive, Super Bock Super Rock, Lisbon Mexefest, EDP Cool Jazz, Lisbon Eletronica Musiculture, Dias da Música, Rock in Rio, among many others.

Note: If you wish, Medidental can organise the whole of your stay in terms of cultural, namely suggesting activities or buying tickets in advance for a variety of shows.
