With doubts about what to do this weekend in Greater Lisbon and Greater Porto? We help.
It is that in Lisbon and in Porto there is always much to do, including exhibitions, concerts and so much more, in events that are the best friends of the portfolio.
We have been looking for free cultural opportunities for these days 5, 6 and 7 April.
It is best to prepare your agenda and deal with this cultural ‘self-service’ and ‘serve’ the cultural discoveries that appeal to you.
