Visit the Christmas Village

Come and see the music and dance performances on weekends and public holidays

The magic of Christmas has arrived in Matosinhos and in Praça Guilherme Pinto. With free admission, Praça Guilherme Pinto hosts a recreation of Father Christmas Village with specific decorative elements, such as Santa's house and the enchanted forest, a train station and a children's train, in addition to animated and interactive moments and virtual reality experiences.

In this Christmas village, you can ride the train and see Santa's house, the enchanted forest, the elves' workshop, the giant presents with light animation, music and movement, as well as share the flavours of our gastronomy and all the Christmas spirit that we propose to bring to this part of the city.

A giant Christmas tree, measuring around 30 metres, was also installed in the area. Throughout the night, the tree transforms itself, changing colour and pattern.

The Christmas Village has extra entertainment on weekends and holidays. On 3, 4, 8, 10, 11, 17 and 18 December, the public can watch choreographed Christmas music and dance shows at 3 p.m. and 6 p.m.

The Christmas Village can be visited until 8 January during the following opening hours: Monday to Friday from 3 pm to 7 pm and Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays from 1 and 8 December from 11 am to 8 pm. On December 24 and 31, the opening hours are from 11 am to 1 pm and it will be closed on December 25 and January 1.

Come and visit us. Let yourself be carried away by the Christmas spirit.
