There are plenty of annual cultural, musical, and religious festivals you can participate in by catching flights to Portugal. February is carnival time in the country, with parades in all the major cities, including Lisbon, and the towns in the Algarve region in particular. These traditionally start on the last Friday before Lent, lasting until Shrove Tuesday. Semana Santa, or Holy Week, is usually at the end of March or the beginning of April. There are processions all over the country, with many centred on the town of Braga, and the largest, known as the Festa da Mãe Soberana, taking place in Loulé. One of the more unusual events runs from March and peaks in August. This is the fascinating International Sand Sculpture Festival, with its astonishing creations. May sees the biggest festival in the Minho region, Festas das Cruzes, which commemorates a religious sighting in the 16th century and has been held ever since. Nowadays, it features circus performances, fireworks, horse races, and locals dressed in folk costumes. In June, music lovers flock to Portugal for the Lisbon edition of the huge Rock in Rio music festival.
Some of the traditional Portuguese food is quite well-known around the world, but there’s nothing quite like eating it freshly made in Portugal itself. Most are simple dishes with basic ingredients and lots of flavour. Caldo Verde soup is one of the most renowned of these. It’s made with a local dark green type of cabbage, combined with pureed potato and olive oil. Another traditional Portuguese dish is bacalhau, codfish that purportedly has 365 ways of preparation, one for each day of the year. One of the most popular is bacalhau à brás, where the fish is mixed with boiled eggs, potatoes, garlic, and olives. A trip to Portugal wouldn’t be complete without tasting another local delicacy, Portuguese sardines, known as sardinhas asadas. This staple food is celebrated annually throughout June at the Festas de Sardinha festival. The national sandwich of Portugal is the bifana, usually made with marinaded and spiced pork and white bread. The city of Porto has its own deluxe variation, the Francesinha sandwich. It’s made with steak, ham, and sausage, topped with melted cheese, fried egg and a thick, hot beer and tomato sauce that’s a closely guarded secret.
Look for good Portugal flight deals and then strike out for the country’s most famous tourist attractions once you’ve landed in Lisbon. One of them will be right on your doorstep, the old Lisbon suburb of Belém. It was the centre of the Golden Age of Discovery, from whence Portuguese explorers set out in the 15th and 16th centuries. It’s where you’ll find the tomb of one of the country’s greatest explorers, Vasco da Gama. The old town of Sintra Velha is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Previously a holiday getaway resort for Portuguese nobility, it has a 14th-century palace and the large domed hall of Sala dos Brasões. Another historical tourist attraction is Covento do Cristo, originally built in 1160 as the main castle housing the fabled Knights Templars. Bom Jesus do Monte, near the town of Braga, is one of the country’s most important religious pilgrimage sites.
