Silves Medieval Fair


The Silves Medieval Fair takes place from 7th to 16th August 2015 in Silves Historic Center (Algarve).

For nine days, Silves, capital of the Algarve during the Arab occupation, returns to its golden age. A historical recreation of the era of the Christian reconquest, the city is invaded by characters from the past such as acrobats, jugglers, dancers and snake charmers who display their skills.

This event, organized by Silves Municipality Cultural Department, intends to show the public and visitors how people lived once in Silves, as well as the city’s importance in the history of Al-Gharb with the Christian reconquest, and of course stimulate Cultural Tourism and the promotion of the city.

Do not miss this opportunity to experience live the noble’s parades, knights’s tournaments and also archers, artisans and merchants to proclaim their products.
