In Portugal, the month of June is a time to celebrate popular saints with religious and festive celebrations. Perhaps the largest, most fun and silliest festival can be found in Porto…the Festival of São João de Baptista.
Summer 2014 has officially begun on the Island of Madeira. The Atlantic Festival is Madeira’s month-long celebration of arts, music and culture. Lots of fun scheduled throughout June, but certainly the highlights occur on Saturday nights with a major fireworks and music. The Atlantic Festival is 7-28 June.
