December in Portugal :)

by Torontorian

Ola a todos!

I'm planning to come to visit Portugal this December. I wiIl stay for a two weeks. I want to know when should I make the tickets and hotel reservations. People tell me it's cheaper if I booked it from now. And I also want to know how much cash should I need to have "besides my credit card" for my daily spending, transportation and food.

Thank you in advanced.

When in December? And where do you intend to stay?

Christmas and New Year ie end December is a big holiday period and many hotels in the big cities and tourist areas increase their room rates considerably.

Your airline tickets should always be booked as far in advance as possible as the cheaper fares quickly sell out, especially at the holiday times.

You will find the cost of living in Portugal not much different from that in Canada. Bring perhaps €200 in cash and use your credit card to withdraw more cash as and when needed. Do not carry large amounts of cash around especially in the big cities. Ensure your credit card(s0 are unblocked for use in Portugal. Visa and Mastercard are widely accepted in shops, restaurants and for internal travel.

Thank you for your response, it was very helpful. and I'm planning to come on the 26th of December and I will stay in a hotel in Porto. I want make sure I have the right budget for going. and Toronto is very expensive, even in transportation. I hope PT is not the same.

Thanks again

The metro, buses and trams in Porto are not expensive and a good way to get around as much of the city is built on hills. A 3 zone day pass (that covers the whole of the city centre plus some suburbs) costs just €4,30 = about 5.73 Canadian Dollars.

Don't worry because you can travel and eat in Porto for less than you would in Toronto. As a matter of fact urbarn public transport is very affordable in Portugal since it's subsidised by the government.

Refreshment areas

by dlytle

As you stroll along between the monastery and Belem Tower and the Monument to the Discoveries, and really all over historic Lisbon, you will find little shops and refreshment stands strategically placed to sell their wares to the visiting tourists. Usually you will welcome the opportunity to purchase a coca-cola or pastry or chocolate bar and relax for a minute or two between sights. After all, this is southwestern Europe and the sun probably is shining and a little shade and a little rest go a long way towards keeping your energy levels optimum for the day’s excursions.

Belem Facilities

by keeweechic

Between the Monument of Discoveries and Belem Tower, there is a café and a few small shops within the building. There are also stairs downstairs but you can only get to those toilets via way of a receipt which you feed into the machine. You need to buy something to get the receipt and really if you don’t want to do that then you are best to go to the ones at the side nearer the souvenir stalls which are just by coin.

Santo Antonio party

by SoulFisher

Many cities and countries around the world have their annual party days. In Portugal, each municipality has a specific holiday, which is the day of its local patron saint.
The patron saint of Lisbon is Saint Antony. Its holiday is on June, 13th.
On the night of the 12th, June, people gather through every piece of slope of hilly old Lisbon on a huge street party.
Throughout old Lisbon there are "arraiais" (old word for open air party) where local restaurant or tavern owners set on the street a barbecue and grill sardines and "chouriço" (that typical Iberian sausage called chorizo in Spanish and chouriço in Portuguese).
People come and spend the whole night until dawn, chatting, eating sardines and "chouriço", and drinking wine, beer or sangria.

Traditionally, there are also stands where pots with "manjericos", a plant relative of the basil, are sold. The plants are traditionally bought by boyfriends and given as present to their girlfriends in Stº António's night.

At the beginning of the night, at the broad Av. da Liberdade, there is a parade where teams of each parish of Lisbon compete in a traditional march. It looks like Rio de Janeiro's carnival, where every Rio's district competes in a carnival/samba show to win the title of best performance. However Lisbon's Saint Antony's marches have a rather typical old fashioned ambiance and old fashioned tunes. Unlike the carnival in Rio, there are no almost naked women dancing African like beats.
It's a popular atmosphere with working class roots. I think it would remind more of a Mexican popular party, with deep catholic roots and old happy tunes played with trumpets.

The parade is somehow kitschy, but the street parties, the "arraiais" in Alfama, Graça, Mouraria and throughout Lisbon are really nice.

Coretos

by solopes

God, I'm old!

I was going to write about the familiar Sunday programs in the gardens, living nature and enjoying the music played in the band stands.

Music was gone, (families are going...), nature is poluted, but a few band stand are still there. Some of them still with "artistic" use - grafitti instead of music - some other, just there.

Signs of the not so old Lisbon, for instance in Pr. José Fontana, facing Camões high school.
