On 29th November 2009, a gigantic Christmas tree, located on the famous Parque Eduardo VII in Lisbon, was officially hand over in a colourful ceremony. 1 625 000 micro-lamps will give new life to the scenic grounds of the tree that will illuminate Lisbon during the Christmas period, between 5.30 pm. and 01.00 am.
