Saint Peter is treated as the patron of my village and every year, on the weekend after the 29th of June, is celebrated this religious festivity in Valverde, a small village in the middle of Serra de Aire e Candeeiros. At the end of mass, there is a procession around the town followed be a afternoon of conviviality, which always joins the population of the village and its surroundings. For those who like to be in touch with traditions this is a wonderfull oportunity to get to know the people and their costums. You can spend a good weekend surrounded by music, activities, family and friends. There is always something to eat: roasted chicken, traditional cakes (so-called horseshoes), chouriço, candies, chocolates, or other things that are sold in a fogaça.
For the ones that don’t know what is a fogaça:
Enjoy it and have fun!!!
