And you know there is so much going on in Lisbon at Christmas! With the city Christmas lights switched on, we take you through the main events and jolly markets so you do not miss a thing.
Lisbon brings together people and customs from all over the world. And this is particularly evident at the Christmas table, with specialties from various Portuguese regions, from other countries, and from different food options, like vegetarian and healthy dishes, always with a festive touch. Gather your friends, family, and co-workers, and book your Christmas dinner at Pestana CR7 Lisboa.
Run to the finish line at the new year’s eve special events. Choose between the Christmas marathon on December 15th, or the Saint Silvester Race on the 28th.
Like all major European capitals, Lisbon also offers markets of all sizes where you can find the perfect gifts for each family member and friend. The stalls feature everything from gourmet treats to fashion, and from handicrafts to luxury brands. We updated the calendar for you.
Lisbon Wonderland in Parque Eduardo VII is winning us over with its big wheel, ice rink, Christmas village and stalls selling regional products, clothes, accessories, and handicrafts. But if you want to go a little further, try the Christmas Village in Obidos, about 1-hour drive from Lisbon. Obidos is a medieval town that puts its heart and soul into this annual entertainment program for the whole family. With a big wheel, ice rink, Santa’s space, carousel, artificial snow, trampolines, donkey rides, and many other fun activities, it is a really special place to spend Christmas time.
You’re in time for a show! Ballet, circus, and concerts pack the agenda in Lisbon, apart from the traditional religious celebrations. Again, check out our calendar and choose your favorites.
