Festival del OtoÃ±o
Festival del OtoÃ±o – or the Autumn Festival is on this weekend celebrating the grape harvest. We went into town in the evening to check out the medieval themed market – which also included puppet shows, a Moroccan tea tent, and plenty of delicious food!
A little train in the main square:
The puppet show:
Many types of herbal tea being sold, including those for certain medical ailments:
I got my name and some for my sisters and parents:
It took pretty long for the ink to dry so I ended up waiting around the stall, but I didn’t mind so much!
Busy markets went on till late:
There were stalls in the main central square of the city and then they lined one of the streets branching up to another open area around what looked like a fort or castle. Not sure what it is – I still need to explore that part of the city!
The Moroccan tea tent:
The tea here was just amazing – mint tea! It was served in an ornate cup, which we’re allowed to take back with us.
