Lisbon Festivals

Throughout June, Lisbon is dominated by saints days, which give the festival its name, Santos Populares. The people celebrate with a program of cultural events, street parties and prayers. Cultural events take place throughout June, but the main saints' days are for Anthony (13 June), John (23-24 June) and Peter (28-29 June). Lisbon is a historic capital, a potpourri of unusual character and charm, where 800 years of cultural influences mingle with modern trends and life styles creating spectacular contrasts in a friendly atmosphere. Fado is, par excellence, the music of Lisbon. It is today one of the most noble and genuine products of Portuguese popular culture.
