When based at your 4-star hotel in São João da Madeira, join the locals and attend the numerous events held throughout the year! On 25 April, blend into the crowd for Dia da Liberdade: a celebration of the carnation revolution that marks the end of Salazar’s dictatorship in the country. On 23 June, citizens honor patron saint São João: spend some moments that are all about folklore and tradition. 5 October is a holiday in Portugal commemorating when a coup d’État by the Republican Party ended the monarchy in 1910. For some even more impressive festivities, you should stop by Vila Nova de Gaia
, at the gates of the majestic and surprising city of Porto. In between celebrations, you’ll be able to get back to your hotel where a gourmet, typically Portuguese meal will await you in our Golden Tulip restaurant.
