Lisbon lights up to celebrate Christmas!
One more reason to spin in Lisbon before Christmas! The lights are back on the Terreiro do Paco square. From 11 to 20 December the square hosts the interactive show “Have Encantadas Portas” (the enchanted doors): projections broadcasted on the walls and arches of the most famous square of the capital. This year, the show is inspired by the Advent Calendar: every day is marked by the opening of a door to the much anticipated Christmas Day. The main facade of the square will play a central role in the show, with 12 projectors that illuminate. The projection on the Arch of Rua Augusta will be conducted by a team of elves, rivaling jokes and trickery, will open a door every day to guide the spectators to the heart of a fantastic journey filled with visual and sensory surprises. This show is offered daily at 19:00 20.00 to 21:00 for a period of about 15 minutes with a rhythmic succession of 25 times with warm colors. These projections will offer audiences a unique moment in the form of sound and light that plunge Terreiro do Paco place in a 360° fairy. A. F.-M.
