Events not to be missed during June in Matosinhos
The month of June is traditionally one of the liveliest months in the Porto and Matosinhos region, not only for marking the beginning of summer but also because of the famous São João. This year we won’t have the lively popular street parties yet, but Matosinhos doesn’t lack cultural events to fill this gap. There are cultural activities for all tastes. Here are our suggestions for events not to be missed in June in Matosinhos:
