FESTAS DE LISBOA 2016
On the feast day of St Anthony, patron saint of Lisbon, the Portuguese capital goes sardine crazy.
June is the main month of these festivities, but they also extend throughout the summer, including a wide variety of events such as fado, jazz and other musical performances, fado in the city’s trams, cinema and theatre festivals, sports events and exhibitions.
With lots of events, music performances, dancers and lots of art. In 2016, Lisbon celebrate the 170th anniversary of the birth of Rafael Bordalo Pinheiro (1846-1905) as well as the centenary of the Museu Bordalo Pinheiro, which was the first museum in Portugal to be dedicated to the work of a single artist.
These are some of the winning Sardines for 2016.
