PORTO, Portugal — Smoke hung heavily over this hilly city, broken by flickering flames, when I mustered my courage, plunged into the crowd and brought down my bright-green hammer on a stranger’s head.

“Bom Sao Joao!” — “Happy St. John!” — the grey-haired man beamed as he hit me back, the circus-like squeaks of our soft plastic hammers inducting me into the celebration of Porto’s patron saint.

All around, tens of thousands of equally armed revelers were indulging in other local St. John rituals — devouring sardines off the smoky outdoor grills and sending papier-mache mini hot-air balloons heavenward.

From late spring to fall, virtually all Spanish and Portuguese cities –from capitals to hamlets — turn into movable feasts in honour of their patrons.

The multiday, multigenerational revelries provide unique occasions to experience the distinct cultures together with locals at their proudest and perkiest. Here are some details on four Iberian holy days that I’ve enjoyed.

PORTO’S SAO JOAO

Aside from the elaborate creches with St. John figurines in many courtyards, religion is hardly on display during the all-night party or the next day, when the protagonist is this northern Portuguese city’s namesake wine.

A regatta of “rabelos,” the boats that once transported barrels, sails from the Atlantic mouth of the Douro River to the historic centre crowded with blue tile-covered buildings, Port flowing in profusion among the fans well before noon.

Knowing this, I secretly welcomed my friends’ mournful announcement, a couple of hours past the midnight fireworks, that we should begin to walk home because their 4-year-old son was tired.

Swinging the last hits with my squeaking martelo among jubilant festa-goers, I thought again that few know how to party like Iberian saint celebrants.
