Monday Mural - variety by the tram stop

If you've read my previous post about Lisbon, you would have seen the "Gloria funicular" that travels up and down between Saint Pedro Alcantara to Restauradores Square. 
Right next to the Alcantara stop is a long wall of bright murals, as well as the tram is also covered in graffiti.
Not sure who the artists were.

"Fight for Gloria" (Gloria = the funicular, I presume)

  3. Did you take these from the train Sami, well done fantastic captures! I was watching a program about São Paulo a while ago, have never seen so much street art and graffiti ever before!

    1. I was outside waiting for the tram Grace. Street art seems to be a growing culture everywhere.

  7. What amazing murals. I even liked the cartoonish ones because they are so different from the ones you normally show. I really like how you find all these murals and how very different they all are.

    1. With so many artists painting them, there are lots of styles around, which makes it fun.

  8. What a pleasant surprise on those otherwise dreary, dirty cement walls! Artists really put some punch into life!

  9. Dearest Sami,
    Aha, that's the reason that you walked half of your 'full ticket' on the Gloria funicular and otherwise we would not be looking at these photos!
    Hugs,

    1. These were right by the stop at the top of the hill, we just thought it would be easier to walk down than climb the hill, and didn't know about the return ticket either...Thanks Mariette.
