Photogallery: Feira da Serra showcased Algarve cuisine and tradition in Loulé

The objective of the Fair was to contribute to the local economy



The Feira da Serra de Natal “invaded” Loulé, this weekend, and introduced visitors to the best that mountain culture has to offer, from gastronomy to crafts.

Antiques, crochet pieces, bowls, flower vases, whistles, earrings or soaps. There was only one reality: everything was made by hand and by Algarve sellers.

With the support of Loulé City Council, the fair also featured workshops children from Loulé Criativo, dedicated to the construction of palm, wood, cork and tapestry, and with musical entertainment, such as the groups Beira Serra and AllCante.

Hundreds of people headed to Feira da Serra to discover typical Algarve products, taking advantage of the opportunity to buy Christmas gifts and contribute to the local economy.

Visitors were also able to taste the “famous” Loulé puff pastries, regional sweets and Algarve cuisine. Everything in one space.

The fair ran until Sunday, but you can still visit the city of Loulé to celebrate Christmas with the program at Aldeia dos Sonhos, which extends through the areas of Cerca do Convento, Cloisters, Largo Afonso III and Largo de S. Francisco, until January 6th.
