The most magical season of the year kicks off on November 30 in Porto with the Christmas lights switch on.

This year, Christmas will illuminate more locations than ever, shining over 80 streets, boulevards, squares and gardens.

As usual, the great Christmas Tree located on Avenida dos Aliados will be the central point of the celebrations. This year, the tree will exceed 30 meters in height and 12 in diameter!

The Christmas lights switch on event will be followed by the extensive programming of special activities organized by Porto to celebrate the festive season: ice rinks, activities for adults and children, concerts, several markets and many other surprises.

There is no doubt that Christmas is a perfect time to enjoy the “Invicta”. Both the Carrís Porto Ribeira Hotel and Arc Carrís apartments offer you the comfort and location you need to spend an unforgettable holiday season.
