#329 I miss sagre – 1

Sagra, from sacro ‘sacred’, in Latin sacrum, in the same way in which festa ‘feast’ derives from fastum ‘holy day’.

Today a sagra is a big festival, a traditional feast, often a religious one, celebrated in a specific way, normally with a specific food or local product.

Normally the main square is full of tables and benches, and an enormous amount of food is cooked on the streets
