From January 23-26 of 2014, Montalegre will host the 23rd Smoked Ham and Meat Fair.

This fair is known as the “queen of all smoked meat fairs” and is famous for the gastronomical menu that it offers its visitors.

For those who live in the Trás-os-Montes region, these four days are synonymous with celebration and lots of entertainment.

As for the onlookers and visitors from other places, it is a great opportunity to find locally-made products and to better understand the history and culture of this region.

Delicacies, spontaneous music and bands will fill the city, giving life to the village of Montalegre, which opens its doors to thousands of visitors during this time of the year.
