Medieval wonders!

Dear Editor,

I want to use your letters section to explain how great my experiences have been at Silves’ Medieval Fair.

I have been visiting the Algarve for many years, and if there’s one event I make sure I never miss is the medieval fair.As soon as I enter the fair area, I feel as though I have been taken back to the 16th century.

Everything, from the way the streets are lined with merchants to the way actors are dressed is top-notch, really gives you the feeling that you’re witnessing what seems to be a very accurate portrayal of medieval times.

Unfortunately, I’ve never been able to visit Castro Marim’s Dias Medievais but will make the effort to do so this year and see how it stacks up.
