Lumina, the Festival of Light, returns to Cascais, in 2015, to delight and entertain through experiences of incandescence, radiance and brilliance. Produced by OCUBO studio under the artistic direction of Nuno Maya and Carole Purnelle, 26 presentations will light up the night skies, gardens and pathways of the seaside community. Lumina takes place 11-13 September.



The theme for 2015 festival is The Four Seasons of Light. Visitors will follow four paths with installations corresponding to the moods of the Rite of Spring, a Summer Night, the Fall Leaves and the Winter Trip.
