Christmas decorations & lighting (Photo gallery)


Photography: Mafra City Council


Although celebrated differently, the essence of Christmas remains, with the necessary adaptations required by the current pandemic context. The light and magic of this festive season keeps shining bright, whether in people’s hearts or in the streets of Ericeira and Mafra, with Christmas cribs, lighting and projections.

This photo gallery, which bounces between the two towns in the municipality, records several nuances of what is possible to see at the Praça da República (better known as “Jogo da Bola”) and in Terreiro D. João V.

Currently, the Municipality of Mafra has an ongoing photographic challenge that aims to build a collective photo album. You can participate by sending your best photographs of Christmas lighting in the Municipality of Mafra by private message on Câmara Municipal de Mafra Facebook.
