São João Porto

Despite being one of the most celebrated popular saints throughout Europe, no city celebrates São João like Porto, in a popular manifestation that draws crowds to the streets, influencing each of the city's neighborhoods and parishes, enthusing all who participate or discover this party for the first time.

Due to its unique and special characteristics, but also due to the increasing quality and diversity of its programming, the Festas de São João are today one of the city's anchor events and an already inseparable brand of Porto, reinforcing its presence in the international tourist scene, namely, for this strong association with unique and differentiating events of the Porto destination.

From the youngest to the oldest, everyone celebrates São João, offering basil with traditional courts or watching the fireworks over the Douro River, where everyone gathers at midnight to enjoy the show with the best view over the city.

As tradition dictates, sardines are roasted in any corner of the city and music and dancing spots are everywhere to liven up the night.

The party only ends at dawn and the most resistant end the night walking along the waterfront, from Ribeira to Foz do Douro, where they wait for the sunrise.
