The Cascais by Art Tour was born out of a partnership between ImpacTrip and the project Take.it, funded by the Escolhas Program and managed by Fundação O Século, which has been present in Bairro da Torre in Cascais ever since March 2013. The initiative was created to value the capacity of mobilization and the initiative that the group Somos Torre has had in its community. In fact, the Bairro da Torre has gained a new sense of community, reflecting itself, too, in intergenerational relations.

During your tour, you will get to visit an open-air museum that introduces you to the story of a community – full of colors, feelings, change, friendship and equalities. You will take a stroll through the streets of the Torre neighborhood, revealing their true stories through their street-art filled buildings that once used to be covered with racist graffiti.

This is Cascais by Art, an urban art gallery that has transformed a neighborhood as well as the people who live within it. In addition to dressing the buildings with color, joy, and positivity, these true works of art covered up the racist and xenophobic messages, provided opportunities to the local youth, reunited people and immortalized stories of this neighborhood that housed the many fishermen from the Cascais Sea.

The melancholic stories of the Bairro da Torre are told from personal testimony and first-person perspective by young guides formed by the group Somos Torre and by ImpacTrip to make this social business even more dynamic. As you are strolling through the streets of the Bairro da Torre, you’ll hear thought-provoking stories of transformation, overcoming and unity. At each corner, you’ll receive a friendly smile, a “Bom Dia!” (Hello!) or a curious look off a balcony, and you will feel that spirit of community and friendship that for many years hasn’t been seen in that neighborhood. This tour will not only leave a positive contribution to the local community but also to your stay in Portugal!
