A large part of this festive season's program is concentrated in the Jardim da Cordoaria, which has been transformed into a veritable Enchanted Forest. It will host the usual Christmas Market, with a variety of proposals and excellent gifts for those closest to you. The space will also host a series of itinerant proposals, which promise to infect all those who gather there with the magic of Christmas. There are large figures, groups that promise to add more color and rhythm to this season, workshops for the whole family and a diverse range of theater, dance, music, circus and exhibition shows, among many others. One of the highlights is the return of the ice rink, which will be installed in Largo do Amor de Perdição and will delight all the curious, whether more or less experienced. It will be free to use, as will the Parisian carousel, which will be set up next to the Christmas Market and promises to transport the public to memories of other times. Christmas also extends to the Bolhão Market, with proposals that bring people even closer to the recently renovated space, creating moments of pure magic among traditional products and seasonal fruit. The city's street markets are also dressed up for Christmas, with products alluding to the season and lots of surprises. But one of the spaces that will arouse the most curiosity will be Santa's House in the heart of Cordoaria, which will receive last-minute requests from the little ones... but only those who have behaved well this year! The old man with the white beard will be there every day to listen to what we want this year and surprise us on the longest night of the year with the most secret wishes that only Santa Claus can tell us.
