Event duration: 3 days
From September 14th to 16th the charming village of Alpedrinha will host Chocalhos – Transhumance Festival that will fill this village with Mediterranean sounds. There will be workshops, exhibits and conversations involving shepherds’ universe and secrets made of wool.
The ancient practice of Transhumance is celebrated by mixing the pastoral music, local products, rurality and tradition. One of the high moments of the festival is the journey through one of the Transhumance paths, with the sound of the rattles, drums and flutes. You can join the herd and be a shepherd for a day.
The end of Summer is the perfect time for this unique festival. At the beautiful village of Alpedrinha, the residents open the doors of their houses, inviting you to visit and taste their products.
