OLD MERCHANTS OF SENDIM Sendim, Miranda do Douro

For those who leave the Valley of Sabor still cloudy and goes up to the upland from Miranda, just after the Dawn, passing through Carviçais, Fornos, Lagoaça, Mogadouro… you should see the donkey´s wagon that have taken the asphalted street carrying the labour of the first hours of work, still in the company of their old owners. These animals are the main event in the 'Gorazes' (the market), every year on October 30th…

 

«That is such a big market

On 30th October and so on

I don´t see through this land

Other that can match it.»
