Santo António in Lisbon
The most popular festivity of the city takes place at the end of Spring, on the night of the 12th to the 13th of June. Saint Anthony is the patron saint of the city which names this period, and to visit Lisbon during this period is a guarantee of a culturally rich festivity. The popular parades of each traditional neighbourhood take place in Av. da Liberdade, heading towards Rossio, filling the streets with hundreds of people, music and colours. On the streets of several neighbourhoods, the atmosphere is not different, especially in Alfama, Graça, Bica, Mouraria and Madragoa. On their squares and medieval streets, you can eat the traditional soup “caldo verde” and grilled sardines, sing and dance all night. It’s an excellent opportunity to end Spring in Lisbon.
