San-Antonio of Lisbon, Portugal - Jean-Manuel Simoes

It is June 13 every year which is the best time to visit Lisbon, and nobody knows.

St. Anthony died near Padua-Italy June 13, 1231, born in Lisbon in 1195, is the patron saint of the city. To commemorate his death on June 13 declared a holiday-town, marks the end of a long quest. The festivities start in the month of May by religious night procession in different neighborhoods of Lisbon called “Festas dos Santos Populares”, followed by performances of”fado vadio” in the heart of the Alfama, and of course, evening entertainment and festivities around the city. For the last few nights, the casino online entire city streets filled with the smell of grilled sardines that are consumed everywhere for one euro. The beer flows freely, bands of all styles come together sometimes offering to mix sounds very unorthodox to couples who are even less. All this breathes a certain “joie de vivre” in the normal temperatures of Lisbon”s night. The end of the festivities will take place on 12 evening with the famous ”Marchas de Lisboa”, parades, traditional contests between highly formal areas of the city on the famous Avenida da Liberdade, and broadcast live on all television channels. On 13, a holiday is often a day of recycling craft, weare going to nap at the beach. It happens like this year is the 13 mid-week, nights could last long, and the crisis in the country can not find an outlet what healthy, all faiths together.

Attend ”as festas of Santo Antonio” is a little betterunderstanding the origin of festivals and ceremonies of theBrazilian carnival.
