What travellers are saying
- Great bookstore at LX Factory. Highly recommend you stop here before dinner and drinks. They have a cafe on the ground floor with some seating and of course, books. Crisp feel on this floor. Different vibe upstairs. Vinyl records up there, love the jazz selection. It was a pleasant surprise actually. And love the art out front.Written 2 December 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- Helpful staff and a cute bookshop, a nice selection in English and a quier cafe at the very end. Good cake!Written 8 November 2019This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- Madonna in the Coliseu! First concert in Lisboa and it got filmed for the DVD. What a night out was! We've never been so close to the action.
The acoustics are great (not up to par to a Ziggo Dome in Amsterdam). It's classic interior adds cachet to a night out. But the chairs on the floor could use a refurbishment.
We absolutely enjoyed the show! Thanks Lisboa!Written 26 January 2020This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.

- I've been living a couple blocks from this place since last December but only just discovered it. It is a public library made from a former palace, and there is free wifi and work/study spaces too. The interior is covered with antique hand painted tiles and the floors are intricate wood designs. Everything is light! There is a terrace that overlooks the garden in the back where there is a shack that sells refreshments. A great place to hide from the crowds, read a book, catch up on your emails or write a blog post! Occasionally they host events in the garden during the better weather months. It is a library, so if you bring children they must be well behaved and quiet.Written 12 June 2019
- We found ourselves at the Biblioteca on a Saturday afternoon and found it to be adequate, as libraries go. But I was really hoping for a grand display of books and other libraryish things, but no. It was a rather mundane building, with a small display area and grand hall with tables. I can imagine the space as a lovely and quiet place to study, but as a tourist destination, it just isn't worth the trip. They did have an old card catalogue, which I had to explain to my 16-year-old.Written 8 November 2019
- This is not a place for entertainment, but for conferences, symposia, etc., especially if the organisers wish to focus the attention of the participants on the event, not on shopping next door to the venue.Written 3 July 2019
- We had a walking tour with a local and had 4 stops to eat and drink like a local. Very nice to have done ; thanks to Inez, our guide, we had a lovely timeWritten 25 September 2019
- This building is located opposite the MAAT museum. You can get there easily if you take the bridge that connects the MAAT to the other side of the road. Normally it’s not really an attraction but apparently they have regularly free exhibitions. It’s best to check online whether there is anything new happening. Currently you can visit an exhibition by two artists : Sara Maia and Pascal Ruesch. The work of Sara Maia reminds me sometimes of the work of the great Portuguese artist Paula Rego.
Not something that should be on your bucket list but if you’ve got 20 minutes to spend it might be interesting.Written 19 August 2019
- Turismo de Lisboa Visitors & Convention Bureau is a useful place to visit when in Lisbon. It's a good idea to go there first if you have no idea where to go, or if you want to book excursions. We only visited to see what information we could get. The staff are helpful and try their best to provide with as much information as they can.Written 7 April 2020
