With a whiff of summer in the air, the Festivities of Lisbon offer a full program of entertainment activities that will invade Lisbon’s oldest neighbourhoods, luring thousands of people into the streets.

Santo António, highly respected and worshipped in Lisbon and treated as a true patron of the city, sets the mood for the festivities that reach their highpoint on the evening of June 12, with the parade of popular marches along Avenida da Liberdade. On the afternoon of June 13, a procession in homage to the popular Saint – who is believed to foster marriages – winds its way through the streets around the Sé cathedral and provides a special religious flavour to the festivities.

Evenings are animated by traditional festivities in Lisbon’s oldest neighbourhoods – from Castelo to Mouraria, Graça, Alfama, Ajuda and the Bairro Alto – with lots of music and dance to the rhythm of popular songs. Decorated with coloured globes and garlands, the city’s streets are invaded by the smell of roasted sardines and sweet basil accompanied by paper carnations and paintings that allude to Santo António.

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.

Volvo Ocean Race Lisbon 2015

Video Promocional Volvo Ocean Race 2015

The Volvo Ocean Race, the largest regatta around the world and one of the world’s top three nautical events, arrives in Lisbon between 25 May and 7 June, turning Pedrouços’ dock in one of the hottest spots of the city.

Lisbon, the capital of Portugal is one of the world’s great cities, and the heart of what was perhaps the first great maritime empire in the fifteenth and sixteenth century. The city is tucked into a stretch of south-facing Atlantic coast at the mouth of the Tagus River. These days the empire has gone, but Lisbon is still a major economic centre with a population of about half a million in the actual city, and an urban hinterland of over three million people.


Village Opening: May 25, 2015

Estimated arrival of the boats:  May 23 – 27, 2015

Sebastião Salgado is a Brazilian social documentary photographer and photojournalist, considered by many as one of the great photographers of our times. His work is revered amongst the public and critics alike and his current Genesis exhibition is sensational. Using black and white photography Salgado has created a collection of awe-inspiring images showing us nature, animals and indigenous people from unimaginably remote places. He gives us a rare glimpse into the hidden treasures of our world.

Genesis is the accumulation of over eight years work and exploration during which Salgado made 32 trips to some of the most extreme and far-flung corners of the planet. This exhibition brings together over 200 works of wildlife, landscapes, seascapes and indigenous people. It also aims to raise public awareness about the pressing issues of environment and climate change. It is a reminder of the breathtaking beauty that still exists on our planet.

Genesis is now in Lisbon, a great opportunity to check it now.
