Description

A unique building in the context of the architectural heritage of Lisbon, the Central Tejo power plant is one of the most beautiful examples of early 20th-century industrial architecture in Portugal. Its structure adopted the iron architectural style common in Western Europe at the time, and was given a solid brick cladding, which configures and decorates the façade in artistic styles ranging from Art Nouveau to Classicism. Today it is a museum that documents the history of electricity, with its original machinery totally intact. It also serves as a large exhibition space linked to its new neighbouring building.
