AUGUST

feira-medieval-de-silves-

August. Month of the big festivals. At the beginning of August in Zambujeira do Mar there is the Festival Sud Ouest, the 5-day pop festival that attracts some 50,000 people every year. A few days long rows in the supermarket, overcrowded beaches and empty straw steps, but not an unspoken word. Not from the locals and not from the festival goers.

And already in the middle of August for the 15th time the Feira Medieval in Silves. In spite of the large fire that lasted a week in the Monchique and which had the consequence that villages around Silves also had to be evacuated, in consultation with all the victims it was decided to continue the 9-day medieval festival. Hats off. Really recommended.
