Have you heard the name Santo Antonio before?
If you lived in Lisbon for a while, there is no way you haven’t! At least someone must have told you about the huge celebrations in June, that are held in his honor.
So who was he and why do people celebrate him still today?
From a monk to a missionary to a celebrated preacher and finally a saint – the life of Santo Antonio was definitely an eventful one and had a huge impact on the people and culture in Lisbon.
Read the entire story about the Santo Antonio Museum on my blog and join me on one of my next visits! Saturday I will go to the Museum of Portuguese Decorative Arts and another place. Sunday I am planning to visit two museums as well but haven’t decided yet which ones. Any suggestions?
See you soon in a museum around Lisbon!
