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.
Stay tuned for the next few days as our friends at Lisbon Urban Adventures show us their favourite local gems on Instagram!
