Feira Medieval at Troviscal

This year, the local council at Oliveira do Bairro sponsored a Medieval Festival (Feira Medieval) in Troviscal, a few km away from where we live. These medieval re-enactments are incredibly popular in Portugal, and although the weather was not ideal, the Companhia De Teatro Viv’Arte put on a fabulous show.

There was jousting, and eagles, dancing and sword fighting, and everyone had a great time. Everyone really got to appreciate what it might have been like to live in medieval times, with the added advantage that we could all go home to our  nice warm houses and mod-cons later.
