Summer is one of the liveliest seasons to visit Lisbon, especially in June, as the city plays host to its most popular annual festival, the Festas de Lisboa. Throughout the month, thousands of people take to the streets of Lisbon's oldest neighbourhoods for music, dance, processions and street entertainment, while the smell of grilled sardines fills the air. 

However, if you have been unable to attend this year's festival, Lisbon has much more to offer the dedicated fish lover than just sardines, whenever you visit. As a seafaring nation, fish and seafood are a staple on menus throughout the country and Lisbon is no different.
