Carnival in Portugal
Carnival has more tradition in towns like Loulé, Loures, Ovar, Sesimbra, Sines and Madeira, of course, where Brazilian influence is strongest.

As one could expect, Carnival in Portugal as a whole has a strong Brazilian flavour, almost an exact smaller copy in many places. Being an exception, the Torres Vedras Carnival, also known and proudly announced as “the most Portuguese Carnival in Portugal” is not to be missed, with its “matrafonasJustificado” (men dressed as women), the “cabeçudos” (giant phantasy figures) and the beautiful decorated cars.

Carnival in Portugal is a party…these are days of fun, enjoyment and cheer.
If you live, study, are on holidays or just passing through Lisbon, try to see the Carnival in Loures (8 kms from Lisbon), Sesimbra (32 kms), a fishing village with beautiful beaches and its restaurants serving fresh fish, or “the most Portuguese Carnival in Portugal”  in Torres Vedras (40 kms on the A8 hihgway).
