Christmas Markets 2022 – Christmas Magic in Portugal
While Christmas markets in Portugal are not as known as in Central European countries like Germany, Austria, Switzerland, and France, Portugal with its warm weather and many festive attractions presents the perfect choice.
Portugal is indeed known for its buildings and vibrant architecture, sunny skies and mesmerising coast, making it the ideal summer destination. But Portugal was made for more than just the warmer months.
Actually, we strongly recommend visiting Portugal during winter months, such as December, when its streets become alive with twinkling lights, the melody of Christmas carols and attractions, which will rival with any other European country.
As every year, when the Christmas holidays approach, many of us count the days until the beginning of the Christmas markets. Good news, the date is fast approaching!
From traditional and mouth-watering food, mulled wine and hot chocolate, artisanal gifts, illuminations, big Christmas trees or even an ice rink, Portuguese Christmas markets always have an abundance of magic and treats to offer.
In fact, there is nothing like strolling in Christmas markets, sipping hot chocolate and enjoying the trinkets being sold in open-air stalls, while enjoying the cultural diversity of Portugal and the unique experience of a Portuguese winter.
Thus, let us introduce you to our own selection of the best Christmas markets in Portugal and their dates so you do not miss them!
