Lisbon: Christmas tree lights up Terreiro do Paço

From December 1 the monumental Terreiro do Paço public square will be adorned with new colours and an even warmer atmosphere with the installation of a technological Christmas Tree to celebrate the holiday season in Lisboa, commemorating this tradition in the most avant-garde way.

64novpt,

Do you know if there will be a NYE fireworks display in the square this year ?. We went to the celebrations here last year and enjoyed the atmosphere and the pyrotechnics so much that we are going back again this year.

I thought last year's NYE (2011-2012) it didn't happen, thought it have been cancelled by the city hall...

As far as I know it was "transferred" to Av da Liberdade area, it was organized by the kiosks owners with the city hall support. Each kiosk had DJs and/or stand up comedy going on along the night.

Sorry about that; old age is starting to affect my memory. We were there for the 2010/11 celebrations. So where do you think the best NYE firework display in Lisbon will be this year ?

Also, Av da Liberdade is quite long. Is it best to try and watch it from the Marq de Pombal, Mon dos Restauradores or somewhere else ?
