Christmas in Lisbon is the stage for all meetings, with sounds ranging from gospel to chamber music, including choral music and Andalusian music. There were concerts in churches – as is already tradition – but in 2017 we entered other places of worship in the city, such as the Ismaili Center in Lisbon and the Radha Krishna Temple.
