3. TRADITIONAL

Religious Festivities of Tróia - August

Religious Festivities of Nossa Senhora do Rosário de Tróia, between the 6th and 11th August, according to the tides. It is a festivity of the people of the sea; its first allusion goes back to 1758. However, only in the last years of the 19th century appears as a clear reference of the festivities as of fishermen, vocation which is still maintained nowadays (in Costa Azul," Festas, Feiras e Romarias - Percursos na Costa Azul").
Fishermen and their families celebrate life and its people in this traditional pilgrimage.
The festivities join the two banks of River Sado. Setúbal, where the fishing community comes from, who promotes the religious festivity, and Tróia (municipality of Grândola), where you can find a chapel that shelters the image of Senhora do Rosário de Tróia during this period.
It is in the Caldeira of Tróia, close to the sandpits that border the River Sado, where the revelers settle and camp during the festivities, according to the tradition.
Religious ceremonies, traditional games, dances and festivities are included in the program. It is also in the Caldeira’s sandpits, near the ruins of the ancient Cetóbriga, where, on Sunday morning, it is celebrated a solemn mass followed by a procession around the chapel. At night, you can watch the fireworks launched from the Caldeira.
Monday is the festivities’ peak with the procession by sea, when the best adorned boat will have the privilege to transport the image followed by all the other vessels, also adorned, crossing the River Sado in the opening and close of the festivities. These are unique moments of beauty and magic.

Options:

  • Sunday – Departure at night with dinner on board, to watch the fireworks in the middle of the river;
  • Monday – Tour, watching part of the procession and the boats’ blessing near the garden of Beira Mar. It will be served a “Moscatel de Honra.”
