Mouraria Innovation Centre

  • (2014 reabilitação)

Located in Rua dos Lagares on the slope of the hill that was later to house the Cerca da Graça gardens, the building that houses this centre was once a mansion from the 15th century. The original complex that was remodelled was made up of five buildings, most of which predated the Pombaline period. The structures retain many features of one of the rare examples of a markedly Muslim spatial organisation that have survived in Lisbon, revealed in particular in the way the complex is organised into different levels and courtyards. The Centre is part of a City Council strategy for regeneration of the Mouraria district, promotion of cultural and creative industries in Lisbon and support for job creation and entrepreneurship amongst young people. The building has three floors and an outdoor space that can be accessed from level 2.
