Snails, one of Portugal’s many culinary delicacies, are the star of a popular festival that will be held in Castro Marim on the first three days of July.

The town’s Festival Internacional do Caracol will take place at Colina do Revelim de Santo António and feature “the best snails made in the Algarve and Portugal” but also other traditional confections from Spain, France and Morocco.

Also promised is a “rich and diversified” musical and cultural programme of entertainment, delicious regional sweets and the whole lot set against stunning views over the Guadiana River and Sapal nature reserve.

Organised by Castro Marim council, the event hopes to establish the town as “the Algarve’s best destination to enjoy snail dishes” while also promoting “traditional products, cuisine and Mediterranean culture”.
