The eating of Sardines in the street, the contest of the Marchas, the selling of Manjericos and the dancing in the Arraiais transforms the days and, mainly the nights, in Lisbon. But, who are their main characters? What’s the meaning of these celebrations for lisbonians and visitors? How this annual event contribute for the transformation of the city?
