Welcome to Rio Maior

Rio Maior: Nearby the Serra dos Candeeiros, Rio Maior was for centuries an important mining centre, since the local population's main occupation was extracting rock-salt from a mine in the Serra. Farming is still the main occupation in the region, with large vineyards and orchards characterising and adorning the landscape. In March, the town comes to life with the Feira das Tasquinhas (Fair of the Taverns), and this is the ideal opportunity to try the various regional flavours.
