Lisbon’s Rock Climbing Gyms (Rocodromos)

There's a growing number of choices for rock climbers to train inside Lisbon, and Atlas helped bring one of them to life!

Rock climbing on real rock around Lisbon is easy enough, especially if you have a car (read our guides Part 1 and Part 2), but in recent years several dedicated climbing gyms have popped up as well, including two that have roped routes for sport climbing, both opening within weeks of each other in June 2022. In addition to training, these rock climbing centers typically offer equipment rentals and sales, instruction, outdoor excursions, and, at the good ones, a community.

In alphabetical order, here they are (or scroll down for a map overview):

Note: Climbing gym opening hours and prices occasionally change, verify them with the gym to avoid surprises.
