XXXVI Festa do Castanheiro – Feira da Castanha

On November 9th and 10th, the Municipality of Marvão promotes the Chestnut Festival. Throughout these two days, the town of Marvão invites its visitors to the four traditional “magustos”, with the best roasted chestnuts and wine in the region, in Largos do Terreiro, Santa Maria, Pelourinho and Espírito Santo. Roasted chestnut, chestnut bread, chestnut liqueur, chestnut candies, and dozens of dishes that use the chestnut in multiple ways. The theme is set for a weekend in which an endogenous species of the region is honored, the chestnut tree, and its fruit (classified as a Protected Designation of Origin – PDO). A weekend  in which there will be no shortage of musical and street entertainment shows. Come on over.
