Discover the cultural tassels that you can enjoy this weekend in Lisbon and Porto.
One more weekend that arrives, the last of January, with so much that there is to enjoy.
There are music, workshops, exhibitions and more to discover.
Before going to suggestions for these days January 25, 26 and 27, we took the opportunity to remind you that Sundays are open days in many museums and monuments across the country.
