Holidays in Porto
Porto follows the same public holidays as Lisbon, and in general as every city and district in Portugal. Many of these holidays coincide with religious festivities throughout the year.
On every holiday in Porto, banks, offices and government departments are closed for the day. Small shops and businesses often close their doors as well, but malls, supermarkets, and other bigger shops remain open but with early closing times. As for public transportation, expect reduced bus routes, a decrease in number of taxis, and earlier closing time for trams and the Metro. To be sure, always get in touch with your local host and they will let you know the best routes and tips to enjoy the holidays in Porto.
