The city of Silves is hosting the seventh edition of the “Fim de Semana com Sabor a Laranja” (Orange Flavoured Weekend), between February 10 and 12.

The three days will be entirely dedicated to gastronomy made using the queen of the orchard, highlighting the unique quality of oranges and other citrus fruits produced in the municipality of Silves, recognised for their sweetness, extra juiciness and exceptionally delicate aromas.

With the Orange Flavoured Weekend, the Municipality of Silves aims to attract visitors and encourage the consumption of this juicy fruit.
