Dia da São Martinho

Dia da São Martinho – Saint Martin - is celebrated on the 11th November.

Celebrated throughout Portugal, this annual event pays homage to the saint who, on a cold and blustery November night, shared his cape with a poor stranger. The day is toasted with new wine tasting and roasted chestnuts – a Portuguese speciality

The legend goes that São Martinho was a brave soldier. On this day, a long time ago, he saw a poor beggar shivering with cold and without hesitation he handed him over his warm military cloak.

As a reward God made the sun shine through the clouds, and in remembrance of his generosity, on this day every year the days get a little warmer.

Excellent stay!! Beautiful location can not get any closer to the beach. The bar was a lot of fun with the saxaphone player doing all the old/new hits. Staff was very accommodating. Location to city center was perfect if you go you must plan on visiting the center to eat, we were recommended to a restaurant that has been in the same family for 40 years amazing.
