|ECA 2019 SOCIAL PROGRAM|
Portugal is a beautiful with a very diverse landscape and it’s capital city – Lisboa – is a great and lively city in one of the biggest estuaries in Europe and by the sea.
Please see this video click here.
June is a great time to be in Lisboa. On the 13th is the city holiday and there are many concerts and all types of parties during the month. Weather is usually very good.
We are preparing a Social Program for accompanying persons and participants:
We have designed a social program outside Lisbon, because there are very interesting places to see and enjoy where it’s much more difficult to go for foreigners than the places at Lisboa.
