LX Factory

Dear Lilly,
How are things going on? Everything is fine around here! Busy days spending working and studying! But occasionally I take a day off to explore different places. This is LX Factory! Did you hear about it when you were in Lisbon? It excelled my expectations! LX Factory takes place in an old industrial complex in Alcantara neighborhood. This complex hosted in 1846 the Companhia de Fiação e Tecidos Lisbonense (Lisbon Company of Spinning and Weaving). Later, business related to the printing industry occupied the area and since 2008 the complex started operating as a creative hub. There you can find fashion, advertising, multimedia, art and many other professionals and companies doing their business. I loved the concept of this place! The public can enjoy nice restaurants, cafes, and stores. Street art color the facades bringing a relaxed mood to the buildings. Pipes and pieces of machinery take an important part in the decoration, preserving the industrial atmosphere and alluding to the place’s history. We walked through the streets, had lunch at Rio Maravilha, ate a delicious chocolate cake at Landeau and visited the bookstore Ler Devagar. Next time you are in Lisbon you must visit it! That’s all by now! Miss you girl!! Xoxo Cristina
