Visit Festas dos Santos Populares (Popular Saints’ Festivals)
This month, the month of June is full of animation in capital of Portugal Lisbon. Lisbon roars to life with great temperatures. Portuguese people don’t work much in June. We prefer to descend on the streets to eat, drink and watch the football games together with friends and family.
