A very special Christmas traditional has begun in a small village in the Serra da Estrela mountains in central Portugal. Residents of the schist village of Cabeça have come together to create a Christmas festival. This Aldeia Natal (Christmas Village) is completely sustainable.
A fantastical festival of light comes to Loulé 24-26 November. This unique three-day event, the first of its kind in the Algarve, brings together light artists from around the world to form a spectacle of illumination.
