About
In 1846, a fabric production plant (Companhia de Fiação e Tecidos Lisbonenses) was created in Alcântara, Lisbon. The industrial complex spanned over a total of 23.000 m2 and was one of the most important undertakings the city had so far seen. Fifty years later, the company decides to move and, in its place, a succession of businesses such as industrial typographies took advantage of the unique location and facilities. Forward to the late 20th century and the location was an abandoned, run-down and decrepit inner-city area that desperately needed a makeover. A private investor decides to take on the challenge of creating something new out of almost one hundred years of history and the rest, as they say, is indeed history. Today, the space is home to more than 200 businesses ranging from cafés, restaurants, design houses, show-rooms, shops, offices, commercial spaces to other projects that link directly to the space’s unique cultural and artistic standing.

Great place and one of my favorite in Lisbon but why do they let cars go inside. It ruins it a little. Good choice of quality shops, restaurants and bars.

Husband and I had a great time sampling beer and checking out the vendors wares. Some a little pricey, some we had seen exactly the same offerings cheaper elsewhere. But for sure worth a spin if you find yourself in the area on a Sunday.

Lx Factory is a very popular tourist place. It is not close to downtown Lisbon and going there is not as straight forward. We went there after we visited Belem.

There are a lots of cafes, restaurants and small shops selling crafts, small nick nacks, house decor items, fashions. Most of the things are quite overprice. It is unique and attracts the younger generations. You can easily spend an hour there. It's good to come to visit only if you are in this area. Otherwise you can skip this one.

There is a free public washroom. It doesn't look too clean but serves the purpose.

This is a really colourful and exciting place. On Sunday it was very crowded which was kind of cool, but they need to do something about the car traffic.

The LX Factory was fine for a little walk around but depending on where you’re located it’s quite out of the way and I wouldn’t have made the trip had I had known.

It’s a pretty abandoned warehouse full of independent shops and restaurants, but honestly nothing I would go out of my way for. The shops were mainly ceramics, costume jewellery and some clothing. We didn’t buy anything and we left quite quickly as there was not much else to do.

We had a pleasant day walking around, even stopped and had a beer. This place has become lest artsy and more commercial over time. Still very popular and somewhat unique. I took photos of the little art that is left.

Probably not worth stopping by unless it's super convenient or you want to snap a few grams. The shopping is limited and the food isn't that great.

A great place to visit for drinks, food, activities or shopping. It's a very cool repurposed area and fun to explore.

We ended up Axe Throwing, then having a couple of drinks in a couple of bars, and then some food at Cucurico (a sort of local Nando's).

I would maybe aim to arrive late afternoon/early evening so you can enjoy a bit of everything.

Very touristic but very crowded at the same time. It's a nice street to be but people who don't adore crowds won't enjoy this experience at the fulliest. The extraverts on the other hand, will love to visit here and there and talk to the locals of this lovely region.

Feels like a back alley hidden gem. So many restaurants and shops. Definitely look for hidden corners, walk up stairs, and behind shops to find other cool places.
