Aigra Velha

These live handicraft demonstrations, hot white cornbread and music form the ingredients for a day full of entertainment in the highest of the Aldeias do Xisto. On 31 July, Aigra Velha is hosting an event promoting the dissemination of local products and handicrafts, with artisans present working and showing visitors how to make white cornbread, “broa”, in a traditional wood-burning oven, as well as the traditional “filhó” (fried pastry) with heather honey.
