After the large Santo Cristo Feast on São Miguel Island, religious festivities continue in June with the Holy Spirit Feast. During this time, the entire archipelago pools their resources to help the needy, and new beautiful cloths are shown to carry on the values of the past.

As it is typical in this time of year, every municipality and every parish host the famous Holy Spirit Soups, a meat broth and bread shared by the community and helping feed the poor.

Vinho de cheiro or fragrant wine, sweet bread and rice pudding are also served during this time of festivities.

Save the date for June 20th on your calendar in the Azores Islands or in Lisbon. The Bensaude Hotels will each celebrate this long-standing tradition.
