11-13 June 2019
We’d read about the Sardine Festival in Lisbon on June 12 each year so we timed our arrival accordingly. It’s actually the Feast of St Anthony, the patron saint of Lisbon and of marriages.
The narrow cobbled streets of the historic neighbourhoods are filled with music, dance, grilled sardines, pork sandwiches, wine and beer. It goes from late afternoon until dawn. Next morning the whole city still smells of sardines.
