Easter Feast in Porto: Half-Day Event (with lunch)

Easter in Porto: Local Delights, Ancient Traditions

After fasting for 40 days, Easter has arrived and we're famished! Easter is more than just a date on the Portuguese calendar; it's a vibrant celebration of life, treasured recipes, and, most importantly, the warmth of family gatherings. In short: Easter equals one heck of a lunch (and we're eager for you to relish it like a true local).

Curious about our Porto Easter traditions?

We are here to make your trip to Porto flow like the Easter egg hunt - full of surprises, excitement and a rewarding finale. On this experience, you'll discover the must-haves for our Easter table.

Picture this: The finest Portuguese cheeses and meats, meticulously curated and beautifully presented on a charcuterie board. Following tradition, a comforting bowl of soup sets the stage for the feast. Because no meal in this country starts without soup! Then comes the main event: tender, slow-cooked goatling, prepared with all the love and tradition of generations past. All of this is complemented by plenty of good Portuguese wine, not to mention a handful (or two) of sweet almonds. To finish it off: a centuries-old dessert. Can you feel your taste buds tingling? We certainly can!

And of course, no gathering is complete without raising a glass of Port wine in celebration. If this sounds like your idea of heaven, join us for the Portuguese Easter Experience in Porto on March 28th, starting at 11 AM.

A great way to become familiar with the Porto food and wine scene. There was some very good food, wine/port samples and the portions were generous. The highlight for me was discussing Anthony Bourdain with the company’s founder (who appeared on Anthony Bourdain’s Porto episode).
