Get to know cultural tassels that you can enjoy these days in Greater Lisbon and Greater Porto.
Our suggestions for this weekend have a great musical component. Both in Lisbon and in Porto there are many concerts and the best part is that you do not have to spend money to watch.
Our proposals have diverse sonorities, which will carry you through rhythms and styles that spread throughout the globe, with particular emphasis on Latin America. But there are also more recognized voices of the general public.
This weekend will also be marked by an event that promises to please the little one (and not only). The ‘Pokémon Let’s Go’ Party brings Portugal one of the most popular characters in cartoons and video games.
Find out more about this and other events and start planning your weekend program.
