Lunar New Year in Lisbon

Today, January 25, the New Year of the Rat begins.

Traditional Chinese Dragon Parade

According to the Chinese zodiac, each year is governed by an animal and an element. This year will be the Metal Rat Year. That means we will have a year that favors quick action, financial life, and mental agility.

According to tradition, it’s good to eat foods appreciated by rats, such as nuts and cheese. A good reason to meet friends and celebrate.

After that how about going with your friends to the Orient Museum and attending the workshop to make Chinese lanterns. The Lantern Festival marks the end of the new year’s celebrations.

Address: Doca de Alcantara Norte, Av. Brasília, Lisboa

From Saturday from 10 AM to 6 PM, except Saturday from 10 AM to 10 PM
