Santo Antonio is the biggest party in Lisbon, in Portugal, and nowadays the parties last the whole month of June. During this month, the weather calls everybody to the streets of old-town Lisbon to be part of Festas de Lisboa.
There are grilled sardines, wine and music in every traditional neighbourhood, like Alfama, Mouraria, Graça, Bica and Madragoa. They are called arraial! You have to walk around and visit one of them! Try sardine on the bread, drink real sangria, smell a “manjerico”, an aromatic plant, and dance to the old Portuguese popular music!
The busiest night is the 12th of June, the whole Lisbon stops! There’s no traffic in the center of Lisbon, people from everywhere around come to the center and the party goes on until the morning next day! It’s like Carnaval in Brazil or like koninginnedag in The Netherlands! It’s an unique night in Lisbon!
Thank you so much for this wonderful lottery
