Art at Lionesa

Mural da Lionesa

Our art is yours too. Lionesa privileges culture. It paints the city’s legacy on its walls to inspire you every day. After all, it’s in the art that dreams live on. And you, here, can dream with us. Our Mural is a stage for renowned artists, such as MrDheo, Chaos, Draw, Third e Mar.

Open Air Gallery

Yes, we have our own open-air art gallery. We bring outdoors what shouldn’t belong inside. We believe in shareable art and in the sense of community. We house temporary and permanent exhibitions. Examples of the latter are “Mural Rua da Lionesa” and “OPO Street’Art Evolution.” We know that here, too, you can feel inspired.

Lionesa Campus

Balio – The Garden

We’re all in for sustainability. We value nature and want it to be part of our Campus. This immense green space is lost around Lionesa. The garden brings together two important names in Portuguese architecture and landscaping: Siza Vieira and Sidónio Pardal. This is a space inspired by the strong connection that unites itself with Caminos de Santiago. Throughout the garden, you’ll find 14 compositions: artistic and landscape ones. The moment you can witness here uses stretch out and get lost among the sculptures and intervening stones. Here, you can give more time to time itself. Here, you can disconnect after a worse day. Reflect before an important decision. Whenever it is, “Balio - The Garden” is waiting for you.

Balio - The Monastery

We can only build the future with a deep knowledge of the past. Our heritage is the most important thing we have. Together with the architect Siza Vieira, we are rehabilitating this monastery (classified as a National Monument since 1910). A project will arise here, one that brings the past to the present—a connection that pays tribute to the pilgrims of Santiago de Compostela. It’s near this space that Siza will create an open sculpture, in white concrete, to
illuminate (even more) this place. Another piece, also by Siza, will be built between the first: “The Walker.” This introspection space promises discovery and reunion moments.

Green Corridor

This corridor will connect Lionesa to Leça da Palmeira, and you can cycle throughout it. There are parking docks planned along the route—so you can take a bike and cycle to Lionesa free of charge. And that’s all for a more flexible, environmentally-friendly routine. In other words, this means you’ll find everything within a bike ride distance—from restaurants to the Matosinhos beach.
