Touristic Info

There is always a stream of cultural events throughout the year. Please see the agenda for the full details. The most important city event, São João, coincides with the last conference day.

Fireworks, part of the S. João festivities.

São João is a popular festival that plays tribute to Saint John the Baptist. It has both sacred and profane origins, and has been held in the city of Porto for more than six centuries. The 24th of June is the day of Saint John, but the festivities take place on the night of June 23 and are considered to be the city’s most important celebration.

Several traditions surround this festival, among which, the releasing of illuminated flame-propelled balloons, plastic hammers with which passers (gently) hit each other on the heads, the leeks, and jumping over the bonfires lit across the city. The fireworks by the Douro river and by the Dom Luís I bridge are one of the highlights of the night.
