November 11

This traditional feast, dating back to remote times, is held on November 11th (St. Martin’s Day, the local patron). That day it is common that families and friends climb the hills surrounding the city and gather around large bonfires to roast the first chestnuts and taste the new wine. Parties last the whole day and night, always seasoned with roasted sausages, songs and a final toast with queimada, evoking ancient rites of purification.
