Popular Saints’ Festivals in Portugal

After scraping a database of all local holidays in all Portuguese municipalities, I’ve found out that 20% of these holidays are in honor of these three saints. According to the data, Saint John the Baptist is probably the most popular one, since is the one with more local holidays in his honor.

What was initially a newsroom discussion became a small newsapp that allowed people to explore the data.
