From 30th September to 28th January in Serralves!


Festival da Francesinha: You know a dish is famous when it has its own festival. That´s what is happening with the most sort after dish in town: Francesinha! This delicacy will be at your disposal in different ways, from the most traditional to its modern variations, in a big food festival. From 29th September to 9th of October don’t forget to walk by D. João I square and see what all the fuss is about!

Musa beer launching party: This Friday, 30th of September you can attend, for free, the launching party of one of the recent craft beers done in Portugal.
