Early medieval festivities

Silves Medieval Fair is taking place earlier this year.

The popular event, now in its ninth year, will be held between July 28 and August 5, a week earlier.

The decision by the local Câmara’s organising committee to move the dates of the event forward was so it wouldn’t clash with Fatacil in Lagoa, the various seafood and sardine festivals across the region and the Medieval Fair in Serpa, Alentejo.

Organisers promise nine days of “great entertainment, with many novelties”.
