They take place on the second weekend of July and according to the locals (of course!) they are the " the third better world party " (after the Rio Carnival and the St. John's in Porto).
Preceded of a cultural week of eight days, these parties mix tradition and culture, the sacred with the profane, the joy with the discharge of feelings and emotions of a year of work.
It is worth taking part and enjoy this people who "makes the guts" to keep the realization of this celebration, when all the local industries close, for the nights become memorable days , noisy but attractive.
The Rural Hotel Quinta da Vista Alegre is the ideal place for all those who come to participate in these celebrations and look for accommodation.
