The Strangest Feast Day in Europe

Jump to last reply

THE FOLLOWING IS NOT FOR THE PRUDISH.

Amarante is one of the most beautiful towns in Portugal. In fact it was used by TAP in their advertisements. But it has one the strangest festivals, Festa de São Gonçalo. It is when young men and women exchange bread in the shape of phalluses to express their interest. Perhaps not the most subtle way to do things. As you walk through the town during the festival the breads are sold by vendors everywhere. I am not kidding. We have been there in the past and it was either last week or tomorrow but you can plan for 2014.

The following are real sites.
