At its 4th edition, Lisbon Week is a cultural event that will take place between the 25th of March and April, the 2nd. With each edition, the event aims to gather people in different neighbourhoods of the city. This year it will be in Lumiar, the oldest parish of the city.

After Alvalade, this is year it’s Lumiar’s turn to host another edition of Lisbon Week. It will be a good week to go back to or visit for the first time the Museus do Traje, do Teatro e Dança (The Costume, Dance and Theatre Museum), the old Tóbis cinema studios, the Monteiro-Mor botanical garden, the Quinta dos Azulejos, the historical centre of Telheiras, the Sporting stadium, the Quinta das Conchas and the Alta de Lisboa.

Lisbon Week comes to highlight the importance of these types of events which invigorate the atmosphere of neighbourhoods located more towards the suburbs of the cities, and which transform the neighbourhoods into cultural and historical points of interest. The Alvalade neighbourhood, for example, thanks to last year’s event, can now manage relationships with institutions that help define the brand of the place, long after the event ended. The same is expected to happen with Lumiar.
