August 12 - August 16Free
Visit the lovely village of Palhaça and its multi cultural flavour. The mix of Venezuelan and Portuguese inhabitants makes for a fabulous atmosphere
around the town and at the Festivals with everyone mingling and partying together.
This festival includes traditional games (balancing pots on your head and running ect..), Hog Roast, Drum bands, Orchestras, Traditional Ranch Folk Dancing & singing groups,
then at night the party atmosphere really kicks in to high gear with Fantastic bands getting the festival goers going….the Caipirinha’s will be flowing well into the early hours.
There is a fantastic big market on the 12th where they have tented restaurants were all the locals go and have delicious bbq chicken lunches😉. Super restaurants & cafes/bakeries, a nice park with a lake for picnics, bbq’s etc.. and a lovely garden with a bandstand in the centre.
It would be a good place to buy a place if you fancied the rural, traditional, slower way of life…This is a local estate agent (we have absolutely no connection with them…for reference only) https://www.horizontediligente.pt/en-us/
