Alfama, Arroios, Beato, Castelo, Graça, Marvila, Mouraria, Penha de França are some of the neighborhoods that until just a few years ago were only visited by locals, by immigrants who arrived in Lisbon looking for new opportunities and who became part of the local society, by some students looking for affordable accommodation, and by the most daring tourists. They were traditional neighborhoods of local people who traditionally lived in their own culture. Nowadays these neighborhoods have been transformed by the new generations in order to receive the thousands of tourists and new foreign residents who arrive here daily. Hostels were created, apartments in traditional buildings were transformed into modern tourist accommodation, old stores were transformed into modern stores run by young people full of ideas and a desire to innovate the neighborhoods.

Despite much modernization, the building’s façades keep the old design … recovered, the streets continue to follow the old ways … improved, and a lot of history continues to exist. People continue to use the outside of the house to put their clothes to dry, in front of those who pass on the streets, the neighbors continue to chat at the window, the children continue to play and play soccer in the streets in front of their houses, the elderly they continue to sit outside the houses watching and passing by and greeting the known and unknown. Whoever passes on the street continues to smell the aroma of cooking in the air, and on the hottest days we continue to see the grills in the street exposed to grill lunch or dinner …
