Sabugal

The municipality of Sabugal belongs to the District of Guarda and part of the Natural Reserve of Serra da Malcata, being crossed to the North by the river Coa. Your location has been a dominant factor in the setting of peoples, as evidenced by assets that abound for 40 parishes of the municipality and that are related to various periods of history. Currently, agriculture and livestock farming are the main economic activities and occupy part of the scarce population that resides in the Sierra, in small isolated villages. The production of ewe's and goat's cheese is another important and very expressive activity in the municipality. The reasons to visit the Sambucus are many: Besides the heritage (historical, archeological, ethnographic and natural, there are festivals and fairs, bullfights, capeias and garraiadas, musical groups, green spaces, remarkable cuisine and crafts. The cuisine is known for trout fishing, hunting wild boar and rabbit (among other species of hunting), the goat and the queijo da Serra da Malcata. The soup of horns, the grilled lamb, sausage, rice with Hare, roast lamb, disposed of or broth of dried pods are some of the best known. In jam, cake donut, pardo, the "forgotten", the corn porridge, pita and yellow rice pudding is stretched pretty thin. The handicraft articles do not abound, but the wooden parts, the blankets of tatters, embroidery, lace, wicker chairs and wrought-iron parts usually appear a bit by all craft fairs.
