Celebration of the 500th anniversary of Bairro Alto  jun13_02

June 13 

The celebrations for the 500th anniversary of Bairro Alto, in Lisbon, started in April and will extend up to December, encompassing several cultural activities.

This celebration aims at promoting one of the most charismatic quarters of Lisbon, with a program comprising street markets, walks, visits, conferences, theatre, cinema, music and dance, to which the Bairro Alto Hotel will join by developing other initiatives.

The Bairro Alto is one of the historic quarters of Lisbon, dating back to the 16th century; it is essentially a living area which became, in the last decades, one of the most sought after areas for night entertainment, not only by the Portuguese but also by tourists.
