Feria Medieval-Medieval Fair

Como se suele decir, las Ferias Medievales son para el verano. De las muchísimas fiestas y ferias que se celebran en esta época, las fiestas medievales son mis preferidas. Me encanta ver los puestos y los vendedores caracterizados de la época. También me gusta mucho descubrir productos originales, la mayor parte de artesanía. La comida, cómo no, también es protagonista en estas ferias. El otro día visité la feria de Betanzos, pequeña ciudad que constituye un marco perfecto con sus preciosos edificios históricos.

Había tanto público que no pude sacarle una foto de frente. Pero lo pasé de maravilla. Había muchos puestos de comida con largas colas. Así que optamos por cenar a la orilla del río Mandeo en Casa Betanzia. Una maravilla, os recomiendo este mesón. 

Espero que os haya gustado este post. ¿Cuáles son vuestras fiestas preferidas en verano?

Medieval Fair


As it is said, Medieval Fairs are for summer. They are my favorite. What are yours? I love seeing the stalls and the vendors in costume. I always find new products, mostly handicrafts. The food is very important too. We tried to buy something to eat but there were long queues. So we decided to have dinner at a lovely restaurante by the river Mandeo. 


These photos were taken in Betanzos, a beautiful medieval town 25 km far away from my city. No need to say that this town was the perfect background for this fair. 


I want to thank this nice bunch of people who posed for me. They all were in costume :)

  1. I've never been to a medieval fair before. I don't think I'd be interested in one over here. In Europe however, being surrounded by all that gothic architecture and such, I think it would be so much fun

  8. I never visited a medieval fair, but I hope I will some day because I really think they are fun to visit. It is also really nice to see (and be able to buy) hand crafted items. I'm interested in medieval cusine, so I think it is great when a festival also offers a wide food selection or original dishes.

    I really like your images, they are wonderful. The costumes look wonderful and those floral crowns are adorable.

  9. Nunca he ido a la medieval de Betanzos...tiene muy buena pinta! En cambio, sí a Ribadavia, a Baiona y a Pontevedra. Este año, también se celebra una en Caldas de Reis, se llama Feira Tradicional, el 9 de Agosto y seguro que iré!Se encuentran verdaderas joyas!

    Un besote!

  19. Jasmine, I have never been to a Medieval Fair... it sounds and looks like a great time... I have a blogger friend in the states that goes to these and dresses up for them, she loves them and says how much fun she has every time she goes. I don't think they are in Nova Scotia xox
