June 2017

In June, Lisboa is celebrating Festivity, Music and Sardines in the city's historic neighbourhoods Street entertainment, concerts and shows, folk festivals are held throughout the city. Year after year, during the month of June, Lisboa's most charming districts (Alfama, Bica, Bairro Alto, Castelo & Mouraria) follow the party tradition, with music on the streets to celebrate St. Anthony. And, as tradition dictates, grilled sardines, "caldo verde" kale soup, bread with sausage, basil, beer, red wine, great music and entertainment are all in plentiful supply. The festival's highlight is the parade on Avenida da Liberdade where the various districts of the city are represented in a competition for best folk parade and the St. Anthony's Brides, a ceremony featuring several weddings at Lisboa's Sé Cathedral. |

No Santo António enfeitado Há cravos e manjericos Sardinhas de cheiros encantados Para os pobres e para os ricos.

Em Junho todos bailam Assim é a tradição As ruas estão enfeitadas Lá de cima até ao chão.

Every weekend from May to September, in the city's public gardens and landmarks.
