The Ribatejo is Portuguese horse country and Golegã is its capital. Golegã is situated on the banks of the river Tagus just down river from Almourol. Every year, during the Feira de São Martinho (the festival of Saint Martin, celebrated in November throughout Portugal and much of Europe), Golegã hosts this popular street party with bull running, bull fights, parades of the Portuguese bred Lusitano horses, with plenty of drinking, dancing and merriment to be had by all.
