Querença Sausage Festival

The 2017 Querença Chorizo Festival will take place on Sunday, 22nd January.

It is a festival in honour of St. Luis (the protector of animals).

Traditionally the families in inland Algarve raised a pig to sustain themselves through the year and asked St. Luis to keep it in good health. To thank the saint they offer their best homemade chorizo.

The festival includes a procession, musical entertainment and, of course, lots of homemade chorizo!

This event will include a procession, tastings of grilled sausages and lots of music.

Art Get Together

During the month of January a number of our "regulars" get together to paint. Here are some photographs of the session this morning.
