Highlighted experience on this tour: Baking traditional bread, by “Quinta Eventos”
This activity takes place in the limestone area of the Algarve (Barrocal), in the traditional and charming “Quinta Eventos”. A unique family farm surrounded by a natural landscape of extreme beauty, enhanced by the nostalgia of the early XIX century decor.
It begins with a walk through the farm where you can know the ancient stories and rural culture, along with the amazing local flora. You can also know the farm animals, like the great star “Nico” the donkey. The high point of the tour is the preparation of traditional bread (sifting, kneading, tendering, baking it in a wood-feed oven...) and eating the bread you have made later during the meal. The bread is made with fresh local products and wild herbs that gives it a unique and authentic taste of true home-made food, served with local wine or herbal tea. "The Quinta!
