Saint Martin’s Day at CERDEIRA
November is here, which also means a few other things: Autumn, rain, bare trees and, of course, the smell of roasted chestnuts by the fire!
At Cerdeira, we like to celebrate the good things in life with a table full of small delicacies, so we’re highlighting this special date again in our village.
The legend goes like this: Martin, a roman soldier, saw a beggar exposed to the freezing cold, so he decided to cut his cloak in two to share with the man, saving his life. Because of this, Martin has become a symbol of good-will and generosity and is a patron to the poor.
As tradition demands, on November 9th, roasted chestnuts will be served along with “Jeropiga” (a local sweet liquor), a good wine and delicious chestnut cakes.
Everyone is invited to share this day with us, in a cozy and friendly atmosphere!
For €6, you get a plate with 24 chestnuts and 2 glasses of Jeropiga liquor.
Tables for groups can be booked.
