As summer closes in, Lisbon is filled every year with parties, music and colour. Tourists visiting the region may have asked themselves why, and we have the answer. The “Festas de Lisboa” are organised to celebrate the anniversary of Lisbon’s patron saint: San Antonio. Although San Antonio’s day really falls on the 12th of June, the Lisbon celebrations last all month long. Fancy a bit of fun during June? Pack your bags and head to Lisbon!
