Rota do Petisco expands to four new boroughs

Albufeira, São Brás de Alportel, Tavira and Castro Marim are the new boroughs that will participate in the Rota do Petisco gastronomic event that returns this year for its eighth edition.

The event is one of the main gastronomic happenings in the Algarve, involving scores of restaurants offering a variety of typical Algarvean dishes and desserts at reduced prices.

It aims not only to showcase local cuisine but also bring old town centres to life while also giving eateries a chance to welcome new clients.

Apart from the four new participating boroughs, Rota do Petisco will also take place in Vila do Bispo, Aljezur, Monchique, Lagos, Portimão, Lagoa and Silves.

The event will be held between October 4 and November 4.

Organisers Teia d’Impulsos are still accepting applications from restaurants wanting to take part. Deadline is May 31.
