The Festival of São João, Évora’s annual celebration of the life of Saint John takes place between June 27th and July 1st but down the years it seems to have lost sight of its roots. What used to be a holy event and tribute to São João has descended into a massive commercial opportunity dominated by car dealers and restaurateurs.
