As friends and valued clients we are keeping in touch with some positive news and links to keep Us in mind as the world opens up again!

This time of the year, own town São Brás de Alportel celebrates Easter in a unique and spectacular way with the floral torch ceremony. Well attended by increasing numbers, we hope that you will have the opportunity to join in the celebrations soon however here are a few links to whet the appetite!

The scents of the countryside are painstakingly laid in the early hours through the local streets along which the procession parades after the church ceremony.

The heady smells which fill the air are accompanied by the chorus of Halleluiahs’ from the different sections of the parade, each taking their turn to add their extra intoxicating dimension.
