Why locals love it?

Nowadays a creative island occupied by professionals of the creative industry, this vibrant area used to be a 23.000 m2 industrial site founded in 1846 by the threads and fabrics company Companhia de Fiação e Tecidos.

Why you should visit it

Despite being mostly a venue for creative businesses, LX Factory offers a rich programme that includes concerts, film screenings, conferences, theatre plays, performances, exhibitions and parties. Here you can also find the restaurant A Cantina, with delicious food at quite affordable prices, and the three-storey book shop Ler Devagar.

Special tip

Twice a year, usually in May and November, an Open Day is held, during which visitors can see the workspaces and projects of the resident companies.
