Looking at a snapshot of Portugal today, it somehow feels quintessentially vintage. As the iconic trams climb steep, inner-city slopes, multi-hued laundry flutters from windows, and the cobblestone streets tell stories from yesteryear.

And while each city oozes old-world charm, there’s an undeniable vibrancy that continues to attract tech innovators, adventure-seekers, and foodies from all over the world.

The beauty of the country needs no introduction, but once you look a bit deeper, you’ll find that mild climate, affordable rent, and the promise of a high standard of living creates an enchanting combination for digital nomads looking for cohesion in the place they call home.

As location independent professionals work to find their groove, coworking spaces have become hubs for a new kind of culture. To put it simply, the days of stiff, copy & paste office spaces are done.

Now, members expect a more personalized experience where they can easily collaborate in a flexible space that allows them to work according to their rhythm. With a free flow of energy and ideas, these coworking spaces are rising above the traditional office setting which doesn’t offer much more than a desk, internet connection, and coffee.

If you’re a digital nomad who has your sights set on Portugal but are still looking for a dedicated place to dive into work, you’ll want to take note of these unique coworking spaces.
