Noite de S. João (St. John´s night)

Each year, on the 23rd of June, just before sunset, thousands of people start to invade the streets of the old quarters of Porto to celebrate St. John’s night. Men, women and children bump each other’s heads with noisy hammers made of soft plastic.

Music, beer and grilled sardines also play an important part…
