Portugal is among top almond producers in Europe. It mostly grows in the Douro region as well as in Freixo de Espada à Cinta, Mogadouro, Torre de Moncorvo and Vila Nova de Foz Côa regions, which are part of the official Almond Blossom Route. When almond trees cover in bloom in the middle of February, these regions organise various festivities to celebrate this beautiful nature phenomenon.
