There will also be plenty of entertainment for the whole family, including an ice-skating rink.

“Silves, Alegria do Natal” takes place on the Praça Al-Muthamid, between 14:00 and 20:00 every day until January 8, 2023. On December 24 and 31, the venue will be open from 14:00 to 18:00, and it will be closed to the public on December 25 and January 1.
