Full description
Visit an open-air museum that tells the story of a transformed community through its vibrant street murals. Walk the streets of the Bairro da Torre and hear stories of change, friendship, difference, equality, multiculturalism, and intergenerational relationships.

In addition to bringing color, joy and positive messages to the buildings, discover how these true works of art, blocked the racist and xenophobic messages which used to exist on the buildings and instead gave opportunities to young people, brought people together and immortalized stories of this neighborhood that housed many fishermen from the Cascais Sea. Understand how these paintings not only embellish the walls of the buildings but transpire culture, inspire change and symbolize the strength of a community.
