The Christmas season in Portugal is marked by the organisation of various events from the north to the south of the country and the islands. From handicrafts to clothes, accessories and regional products, SUPERCASA Notícias shows you which Christmas markets you can't miss this year.

Taking place in Parque Eduardo VII between 30 November and 1 January 2024, Wonderland Lisboa is the most famous Christmas fair in the Portuguese capital, with attractions such as the ecological Ice Rink, the giant Christmas Tree, the Ferris Wheel and Trampolines, the Christmas Train and a Village for the little ones to enjoy.

Not forgetting the Christmas Market, which is characteristic of this event, where you can find handicrafts, regional products, clothes, accessories and sweets.

Rossio Christmas Market

In Baixa-Chiado, between 18 November and 21 December, you can stroll around and enjoy the Christmas spirit at the Rossio Christmas Market. This year, the Rossio square will be decorated with special lighting and there will be twice as many wooden houses as usual, where you can explore the handicrafts and traditional flavours of our gastronomy.

At this free event, you can also visit the Dolls' Hospital Christmas Exhibition and the Christmas Train, or watch performances by folklore groups, academic "tunas" and philharmonic bands.
