“The Capeia Arraiana is a bull fighting expression of some of the people of the Council of Sabugal close to the border with Spain, and it differs from the other bull fight manifestations because the handling of the bulls is done in group, using a “Forcão”.
The Capeia takes place in August, together with the patronal festivities of each community, and, generally, is held in the town square, temporarily closed. Besides the Capeia itself, are part of the same event the “Encerro” and “Boi de Prova”, before the Capeia, and finally the “Desencerro” with which it ends”.
