Christmas in Lisbon is almost here!

The magic of the Christmas season is upon us and, as usual, we’re celebrating this special time of the year with a month full of concerts and other activities that can be enjoyed for free in various locations across the city.

At this year’s “Christmas in Lisbon”, the city’s numerous and beautiful churches (including the cathedral itself) will host concerts featuring choirs, classical music and traditional Christmas songs from different eras and countries. We’ll also be opening the Archive Room at Paços do Concelho for a piano recital, where masterpieces of European classical music by composers such as Bach and Chopin will be performed. The Ismaili Centre will be the venue for a concert inspired by the Mediterranean musical tradition and we’ll be returning to Lisbon Airport to welcome travellers with a gospel
performance that promises to lift the spirits. In December, music will be the map guiding us in search of different places and times, but there’ll be much more on offer besides: Museu de Lisboa will be opening its doors to youngsters and there’ll also be multicultural experiences, reflecting the many communities which make up the city and are joining in with this moment of spiritual celebration.
We therefore want to thank, first of all, the Patriarcado de Lisboa for their longstanding collaboration in our Christmas programming, as well as the Buddhist Union, the Ismaili Centre and the Hindu Community for their more recent support. Without these partners and the participation of the public, this programme simply wouldn’t be possible. Seasons Greetings!
