Festivities in honor of Nossa Senhora da Ajuda

Espinho
Description
Held on the third Sunday of September, this is the Patroness Saint of Fishermen, to whom they ask assistance.

The cult of Nossa Senhora da Ajuda, with solemn Religious Ceremony in the Chapel and the respectful Procession, is followed by profane festival with popular party culminating in a big pyro musical show.

On the last day, the weekly market gives closure to the festivities with the traditional “
Feira das Cebolas” (Onions Market), where the onions are exposed in stranded wire, ancestral practice.

Every year, thousands watch the Majestic Procession with the passage of the litters. One of most the emotional moments is the Blessing to the Sea.

It stands out the elaboration, at night, of the Flower Carpet of Nª Srª da Ajuda, with the collaboration of several volunteers.
