Ooooo its June! PARTY TIME. Lisbon comes alive during the month of June with street parties and parades during Santo Antonio Festival Lisboa.
Within the oldest districts in Lisbon – Mouraria, Gra?a, Alfama, Ajuda and Bairro Alto – the nights come alive with traditional parties that include street music, dancing to traditional Portuguese songs, DJs, the streets are decorated with colourful balloons and garlands and the smell of sardines floats through the air.
Santo Antonio is the patron saint of Lisbon and the city celebrates him on the 12 June with the parade of popular marches along Avenida da Liberdade.
It really is a wonderful day and night at the Santo Antonio Festival Lisboa..
