Torres Vedras Carnival - Party day and night

There are many carnival traditions in Portugal, most of them away from the city. One of the most famous cities that celebrate this occasion is Torres Vedras, where during 5 days (and nights) people dress up and celebrate on the streets.

The real party only starts on February 11, but you can already feel the excitement as the date approaches, since yesterday was inaugurated the Carnival 2010 monument.

If you like to party day and night, don’t’ be shy: Dress up your favourite costume and visit them for a “surrounding Lisbon’s experience”.
