2012 Sea Gastronomy Festival

2012 Tavira Sea Gatronomy FestivalThe flavors of the sea are back to the table in Tavira. Between 12 and 27 of May, with yet another of the Sea Food Festival. In its 9th edition, the event will take place in 15 restaurants in the parishes of Cabanas, Santa Lucia, Santa Maria and Santiago, enabling all sea food lovers to try dishes that combine tradition and innovation.

The public once again will have an added incentive, the participants will enter a contest to win a weekend in one of the following hotels: Pousadas de Portugal, Vila Gale Hotels, Imperial Residential (Tavira) and Casa Viana (Cabanas de Tavira).

The food festivals go with the philosophy of life established by the international movement “Cittaslow”, which Tavira is part of. The adherence to this philosophy assumes that you enjoy the pleasures of life in a relaxed way, preserving tradition and quality cuisine in small towns. Currently, these festivals take on a new meaning, given that Portugal presented an application of the Mediterranean Diet to the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO in March through the community representative of Tavira.
