Marvila

Marvila is a neighborhood located between the prime area of ​​Parque das Nações and the historic Alfama area. Marvila presents characteristics of an old industrial and agricultural area: factories, workers’ villages, some uncharacteristic buildings and more than 500 small gardens scattered throughout the neighborhood and where you can see some of Lisbon’s main roads. Marvila has been changing the landscape due to some important works, namely the largest Municipal Library of Lisbon, the Bela Vista Golf Course, the Park da Bela Vista – the place where various outdoor activities take place, namely the Rock in Rio Lisboa music festival. The Lisbon WorkHub – a space for entrepreneurship and business creativity and the Fábrica de Braço de Prata – a space for nighttime entertainment and cultural activity located in the Jardim do Tabaco along the Tagus River. In Marvila we can find everything from the most traditional establishment, such as a barber shop and a tailor, to a luxury private condominium with the most modern facilities. Marvila is very popular with connoisseurs of urban art, as it registers some of the most beautiful examples of modern art in the entire city of Lisbon. For all this, Marvila is a modern and traditional neighborhood in the Portuguese capital.
