The holidays may have come to an end, but Lisbon is still in celebration mode. All of the city’s squares host markets, bumper car tracks, carousels, and even ice skating rinks. Luckily, the weather this year means you can do all of these things and not get wet (unless you want to go surfing).
Natal em Alcântara
Did I mention the fruitcake? Lisbon does it right. During the holidays, the Bolo Rei (king cake) is all the rage. You can even find free samples at most Pingo Doce supermercados
if you’re curious. It tastes a lot less like a Christmas tree than it looks.
There’s lots to see and do in the wintertime, well, except maybe laundry. Check out our calendar for specific details.
