Happiness and smiles are guaranteed and this is a place for kids and adults alike. So, if you want to celebrate Christmas, even before it starts, then go to Perlim, in Santa Maria da Feira, from the 1st of December until the 2nd of January.

Perlim: all the information you need

The official Perlim program promises to bring the Christmas charm to even more visitors to Quinta do Castelo. Among new areas, unprecedented and inclusive shows, in December, the Magic of Christmas is experienced in Santa Maria da Feira.

There will be 8 original and unpublished shows that visitors to Perlim will be able to watch daily. Staged by more than 50 actors, each show will have between three and four repetitions (with the exception, of course, of the final show) making a total of 25 sessions that can be seen every day.

The theater companies are mostly from the municipality of Santa Maria da Feira while one of the groups comes directly from Germany to add magic to Quinta do Castelo.

As for entertainment, there are many and for all tastes. Between tree climbing, slides, mini-tree climbing and mini-slide (for children under 1.30 m), the traditional Carousel and the Perlim Arena, fun, rhythm and adventure will not be lacking for the little visitors to the Theme Park.

Santa’s House

Another novelty concerns Lapland. Traditionally located in the Castelo area, Casa do Santa Claus will be located in a new thematic area, on the way up to the castle. In addition, and for the first time in the history of Perlim, the Feirense monument will not be part of the Theme Park.

This alteration comes in the wake of the requalification works. Thus, unlike the last editions, the event will have only one entrance located in Alameda Doutor Roberto Vaz Oliveira, also known as Lago das Bailarinas.

Outside the enclosure, the unprecedented Circo Magikal will be in the area surrounding the Municipal Swimming Pools and will have a duly marked path that will connect it to the Christmas Market (in Largo do Rossio) which, with free admission, will host the daily closing pyromusical show.

This space will also have a lot of entertainment with music and dancing, a Carousel, gifts and delicious treats ready to sweeten an unforgettable end of day in Santa Maria da Feira.
