Fair of the Cantarinhas 2018 Bragança

Na comida havia representação da doçaria local com “económicos”, “súplicas” e “dormidos”. Depois havia apresentação de doçaria de outras regiões e até apresentação de pastelaria a que chamamos de “fabrico próprio”.

In the food there was representation of the local sweets with “economic”, “supplicas” and “asleep”. Then there was presentation of sweets from other regions and even presentation of pastry that we call “own manufacture.” Some vegetables some for planting. For me I avenged myself to eat of the good bread and roasted chorizo, a piece of good “bísaro”, round and delicious peas, all of the best in the D. Roberto restaurant in Gimonde. It has Housing Tourism and an appetizing regional products store, with the best sausages that are made there.

What to see in Bragança?

Bragança is the capital of the region of Trás-os-Montes, in the northeast of Portugal. This remote and mountainous region offers unique scenery, historic villages, natural landscapes and a rich gastronomy. Bragança is situated at the end of the Natural Park of Montesinho – one of the wildest forest areas in Europe, with a huge diversity of fauna and flora.

The inhabitants have a traditional way of life, especially in smaller cities and towns, such as Miranda do Douro, Mogadouro, Torre de Moncorvo and Freixo de Espada à Cinta. The daily life has not undergone many changes for centuries and these isolated villages have a very own rustic beauty. The region is especially beautiful in the spring when a white blanket of almond blossoms covers the valleys. The nearby Mirandela is known for its meats and alheiras, but you can find local specialties a bit throughout the region.
