Finding Treasures in Portugal

Crazy colours!

Just incase you didn’t know. I am in love with Portugal. I don’t know why I didn’t come sooner to this stunning country where the food is just amazing, the people are as warm as the summer sun and the scenery makes me breathless.

And to add, Portugal is just full of treasures. By treasures here I mean art treasures, or better known as street arts. I love a decent street art that adds beauty in a place. I love it when they are painted in bright colours and contain bold statements.

Portugal is full of it. Some street arts are hard to miss, some are hidden and some are placed in a non-typical place. Here is a photo essay of what I saw in the streets of Lisbon and Porto.

I love this one, it’s so girly and different to the rest of the street arts.

While the other street arts are painted or sprayed, this one is totally unique. The artist used the chipped brick to create a face. I must say this is pretty stunning, don’t you agree?

This lady totally caught my attention. I assume she’s the Queen of Heart, she is so cool with her I-don’t-care facial expression, I just LOVE it.

I found this little giraffe in the street of Porto, not a huge street art but it attracted my attention with its bright orange paint.

And of course Zorro is from Porto! Look, he is holding a glass of red wine!

Do you love street arts as much as I do? Which one is your favourite Portuguese street art?

  4. I’m so jealous of you going to Portugal. Missed this place during my Europe trip. I’m back in China. I love the graffiti work, something unusual!

    So happy to read you’re in love with my country.
    You are always “bem-vinda”, that is, welcome! 🙂

    1. I absolutely love your country! I never wanted to leave and when I did I even started crying! Not a lot of countries have that effect on me 😉

  13. That chipped brick face is incredible, I can’t even imagine the amazing art that these artists probably paint at home too. Thanks for the photos!

    1. I know isn’t it amazing! I feel like coming back to Lisbon to discover more amazing arts!

  15. […] like things that make you stop in the street when you’re travelling – like the street art in Portugal photographed here by Aggy, of travel blog […]

  16. […] Keep your eyes wide open while in Lisbon to spot the city’s street arts. Street arts can be found in many area in Lisbon so it is always fun to do street art hunting while you stroll aimlessly around the city. You can also take a street art tour if you’d like to learn more about them. As a street art lover, I was completely satisfied with my “hunt”. […]
