A visit through the working areas of Chelas, Beato, Xabregas and Marvila
conducted by RAIMUNDO SANTOS

We continued the Cycle Lisbon from the Aljube with Working Lisbon III. The first two visits were to the working area of Graça and the Castle, and to the Benformoso area and Intendente.

In the Eastern Lisbon of the second half of the twentieth century, royal mansions and noble farms had been literally swallowed up by the world of large factories and warehouses that bordered the Tagus River and climbed through the valleys to Olaias and Areeiro.

A large industrial population that grew working courtyards and neighbourhoods with an intense cultural and associative life settled in this industrial Lisbon, crossed by the railroad and next to the Tagus River.
