On the occasion of the 1st International Oporto Circus Festival, the city will host more than 40 free shows in different locations, most of them outdoors.

12 national and international new circus companies will bring entertainment to various points in the city, such as the Plaza de Poveiros, Jardín de São Lázaro or Plaza de Batalha.

Among the outstanding shows are the “Six pieds sur terre” (“Six feet above the earth”), from the French company Lapsus; “3D”, from HMG, also from France; or the première of the performance of the German acrobat duo, Zircus Morsa, entitled “La Fin Demain” (“The End Tomorrow”).

Undoubtedly, this is just one more reason to visit the city of the Douro this September and stay at our Hotel Carrís Porto Ribeira or the Arc Carrís apartments.
