Photo Of The Week: Ruin Art In Lisbon


We love urban transformation – especially when it involves bringing new life to something old and forgotten. These abandoned houses near Castelo de São Jorge in Lisbon were transformed into colourful vertical gardens by a local artist. This ruin art is certainly a less invasive form of street art (unless you have allergies!) and is a stunning way to round out the perfect day in Lisbon! It’s scenes like this from this week’s Local Takeover that make us wanderlust hard for the Portuguese jewel.
