Marvila

Marvila is a neighborhood located between the prime area of ​​Parque das Nações and the historic Alfama area. Marvila has characteristics of an old industrial and agricultural area: factories, workers’ villages, some sets of uncharacteristic buildings and more than 500 small gardens spread throughout the neighborhood and where it is possible to see from some of the main roads in Lisbon. Marvila has been changing the landscape due to some important works, namely the largest Municipal Library in Lisbon, the Bela Vista Golf Course, the Parque 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 nightlife and cultural activity located in Jardim do Tabaco by the river Tagus. In Marvila we can find everything, from the most traditional establishment, like a barbershop and a tailor, to a luxury private condominium with the most modern facilities. Marvila is much sought after by urban art lovers, as it has some of the most beautiful examples of this modern art in the entire city of Lisbon. For all this, Marvila is a modern and traditional neighborhood in the Portuguese capital.
