But once this industries were over, the place became obsolete and nothing but a big empty factory. This was when LX Factory was born: in 2008 as a “creative island”, gathering all kinds of art, gastronomy, literature, crafts… everything that was a different way of thinking and dedicated to art, design and music. In LX Factory you will find many kinds of markets, bars, restaurants, bookshops… and so many market concepts that you won’t find anywhere else.

Augusta Street (Rua Augusta)

Others / Warehouses

Rua Augusta (Augusta Street) is one of Lisbon’s busiest streets. Rua Augusta is a pedestrian street paved with the traditional cobblestone designs (calçada à portuguesa) and it is full of shops and restaurants, along with some street artists that make Rua Augusta even more alive. Rua Augusta connects two of the most important squares in Lisbon: Praça do Comércio and Rossio. The “calçada portuguesa”, the traditional Portuguese flooring, is of particular beauty on this street, due to its wide width and length. While you walk, appreciate its beautiful drawings and patterns. It consists of small flat pieces of stones arranged into patterns or images, like a mosaic, and can be found also in some other Portuguese colonies. These unique mosaic pavements are typically from limestone or basalt, and its irregular shape allows a game of contrasts between the black and white, forming various decorative and interesting designs due to the difference in nuances of the different pieces. These stones are placed one by one, paying attention to all the details that, like a puzzle, will later form the patterns.
