The Christmas and New Year programme will start on 28 November, earlier than usual, filling the city with light and colour!
Christmas lightings on 30 streets and venues, entertainment, ice rinks and a Christmas market, are an invitation to visit the city, to calmly stroll around its streets, to know its shops, its gastronomy specialties, and to enjoy a festive atmosphere.
The Avenida dos Aliados, the Rua das Flores and the Clérigos Tower will have special lightings.
On the Avenida dos Aliados will shine the Christmas Tree, this year accompanied by the installation “Sound Textures” by the architect Isabel Barbas.
The regeneration works of the Clérigos Tower will be concluded on 12 December and on that day our dearest monument will shine brighter than ever.
The Rua das Flores, a walking street with a varied range of shops, will have a “special light” and those shopping at the traditional commerce will be given vouchers to use for parking and on the ice skating rinks in Praça D. João I and rotunda da Boavista (Praça Mouzinho de Albuquerque).
The novelty is the Christmas Market on Praça da Liberdade, from 4 to 14 December.
New Year’s Eve promises great and fun moments! The bands Clã and Expensive Soul will heat the scene and at midnight there will be surprising fireworks, offering a unique experience to the public!
The city awaits you! Winter, spring, summer or fall, Porto is Porto all year round, period!
