oh you will love this area. in the alcantara neighbor hood there is this thing called lx factory. a creative island as they describe and which i surely can confirm. are you looking for a unique atmosphere not too far away from lisbon city center? then this is where you go!
to take tram nr. 15 from lisbon is the easiest way to get to the lx factory. get off at the station calvário and walk to the lx factory.
this is a really cool place to visit, it is packed with art, music, restaurants and shops.
there are really nice vintage shops with second hand clothing and accessoires but also retro furniture, lamps and a lot of amazing stuff. so check it out!
what you can’t miss is library ler devagar with books and records, located in the lx factory where you can have fantastic coffee, free wifi and space to sit and read.
i could spend a whole day there, so don’t rush by and take your time when you visit.
