Christmas and New Year in Lisbon

Christmas and New Year in Lisbon

Some tips and advices on what to do if you are spending Christmas and New Year in Lisbon.

Lisbon is always amazing at every time of the year! It is perfect to visit during Spring, with all the beautiful flowers blossom (in many gardens of the city and mainly in surrounding places like Sintra or Arrábida), Summer is hot and it is amazing to go the beach, to attend some beach parties and enjoy one of the top destinations in the world to take a deserved rest or finally have some fun.
You have decided to visit Lisbon during Christmas and New Year! So now, what to do?

Well, Lisbonhost has a couple of suggestions ;)

Christmas in Lisbon

Even though here in Portugal we are strongly being affected by the austerity measures imposed by the government, there are still some charming Christmas decorations on the streets, worth taking a look at and admire.

* Liberty Avenue street – One of the most emblematic streets of Lisbon keeps the tradition of the special Christmas Decorations.

* Christmas Tree on the Commerce Square – A large, 28m high tree has been installed on the center of the Commerce square, adorned with beautiful lights and Christmas decorations

* Square Dom Pedro IV (Rossio) – Giant Ball with Christmas effects

* Obidos Christmas Village – Every year, during Christmas season, this beautiful village, near Lisbon, is transformed into a fairy tale with all the Noel characters present, including a dream Carousel, a Santa Claus House, the Ice Rink and Castle Ramp.

* Pastries/Special dishes – Don’t miss out the specialities locals eat during this time. Among others: bolo rei, farturas, sonhos, fatias paridas, are “”must have”” and you will regret forever if you miss them :) As far as dishes, the most typical are with bacalhau (codfish), perú (turkey) and polvo (octopus).

Again, there are many options on this festive day. Many hotels hold their own parties, and most of the clubs/bars have special programmes for this night.

    We love spending Christmas and/or New Year's in different places. One of the best Christmases we ever had was during a Panama Canal cruise. We made some excellent lifelong friends on that trip. I've never been to Portugal, would certainly like to visit. Reply

    We were here for four days only but had SUCH an amazing time! Our futaorive place was the Belem monastery, the cloisters were a beautiful sight and definitely had the wow' factor, made even better by the fabulous weather and we enjoyed our sandwiches by the outside fountain.In Lisbon the castle was lovely and the views spectacular. We had lunch in Graca in the shade and looked out over the city and the sea from another great viewpoint.Despite the sea being quite chilly we had great fun and spent hours in it among the great waves, admiring the surfers and bodyboarders. One in particular styled a lovely helmet accompanied by flippers and a bright red wetsuit!!The flat was lovely. Thank you very much!!PS The shopping centre in Chaido where FNAC is has brilliant views from the toilet window! A lovely surprise!!Penny, Alex, Camilla and Charlotte. Reply
