The splendid nature, landscape and history of the Rio de Onor area has inspired writer such as Miguel de Unamuno, Miguel Torga and José Saramago, who began his Viagem a Portugal in this Portuguese district, located on the border with Spain and twin to the Zamoran district of Rihonor de Castilla on the other side. Hay Festival Segovia takes one of its Dialogues with the Earth to this unique corner of the peninsula, one of Portugal’s Seven Wonders, in the category of Protected Towns and Areas. The event is organized within the framework of Focus on Portugal, and in partnership with the Portuguese Embassy in Spain and Turismo de Portugal. Those attending this intensive event will experience some of the attractions of this place, which has just fifty inhabitants. They will meet some of those who live here, try some traditional dishes at an open-air lunch, and find out about its traditions. The master of ceremonies will be the journalist and writer Agustín Remesal, former TVE correspondent in Portugal and author of a dozen books of history and journalism including Por tierras de Portugal. Un viaje con Unamuno, published in 2014, in which he offers an in-depth look at the great writer’s travels in our neighbouring country.
