Medieval Paderne

Held at the end of each year in Albufeira, a nearby coastal city, Medieval Paderne lasts until the start of January. The event enables tourists and locals alike to go back in time as the medieval market is recreated.

The event involves activities such as: sword fights, donkey rides, belly dancers, and parades. You can also browse arts and crafts stands showcasing some of the finest regional gastronomy. There is even a procession that highlights the Letter of Donation by Dom Dinis, the then-king of the region.

If you enjoy history and partaking in culture, Medieval Paderne is worth attending. You will have to dress the part to ensure that you soak up the atmosphere and experience what life was once like back in time.

Carnival of Loule

The Carnival of Loule is widely known across the continent and attracts thousands of spectators each year. Watch in awe as the streets of Loule are packed with people wearing face masks (not the COVID type!) during the colder part of the year.

The celebration first began in 1906 and has been going strong since. As a result, the region satirises major economic, political, and social events of the previous year for three consecutive days. Carnival floats packed with various entertainment are built to bring the area to life.

There are all sorts of activities that you can participate in to have fun. Every year there is a different theme and once again it pays to dress up accordingly. Expect to see giant puppets, entertainers, dancers, samba groups, and lots of food when you visit.

Everyone is encouraged to go all out for the ultimate mardi-gra atmosphere.
