Celebrate St. Martin’s Day in the Azores, a unique blend of religious tradition and harvest festival. On November 11th, join the magusto, a community gathering featuring bonfires, roasted chestnuts, and the season’s first wine tasting. Experience the joy of São Martinho, honoring Martin of Tours’ miracle. Don’t miss this vibrant celebration of Azorean culture and the year’s wine production. Remember, as they say in Portugal: “É dia de São martinho. Comem-se castanhas; prova-se o vinho!”.
Of course there are many St. Martins celebrations in Faial, too. The main event is the Festa do Magusto on the Repbulic’s square just in front of the Mercado Municipal. Have a look at the program, come, enjoy chestnuts, wine, look around at the handicraft market and be in a good company.
