Festivals of Troy - August
Feast of Nossa Senhora do Rosario de Troia.

Fishermen and their families celebrate life and their people in this traditional pilgrimage.
The festival joins the two banks of the river Sado. Setúbal, from where the fishing community that promotes the festival originates, and Tróia (Grândola county), where the chapel that houses the image of the Lady of the Rosary of Troia during the festivity period is found.
It is in the Caldeira de Troia, right by the sands bordering the Sado, that the partygoers settling there, camping during the festivals, as is tradition.

It is also in the sands of the caldera, next to the ruins of the old Cetóbriga, that on Sunday morning, a solemn mass is celebrated followed by a procession around the chapel. At night, one can watch the fireworks from the Caldeira.
