MIRANDA DO DOURO

MDR

Miranda do Douro é um concelho do distrito de Bragança com 488,4 km² de área territorial e cerca de 9 000 habitantes, divididos por 13 freguesias. Esta região separa a província portuguesa de Trás-os-montes e a província espanhola de Castilla e León.

Conhecida como a capital de Trás-os-montes, Miranda tornou-se num local de grande comércio, nomeadamente para o povo vizinho (os espanhóis) que atravessa a fronteira em busca das tradições e cultura transmontanas: desde os produtos artesanais como as Colchas feitas nos teares tradicionais, os tecidos de Saragoça e Buréis, os Bordados, Gaitas de Foles, Flautas, Castanholas e Rocas; à típica gastronomia, mais concretamente os famosos enchidos que, como se descreve no site do município, “fazem parte de um saber encestral das nossas donas de casa, puro e genuíno, incomparável na mestria e no cuidado com que preparavam os enchidos regionais que ao longo do ano faziam as delícias dos convidados em dias nomeados.”
Assim, para que o concelho possa mostrar aquilo que de mais genuíno produz, acontece anualmente no fim-de-semana de Carnaval, o Festival de Sabores Mirandeses, “evento de referência na região que pretende desenvolver, apoiar e reforçar a competitividade dos produtos tradicionais e locais, desde o artesanato, a doçaria e as raças autóctones (Vitela Mirandesa, Cordeiro de Raça Churra Galega Mirandesa, porco e seus derivados).”

Como pontes de interesse do concelho, destaca-se a Sé Catedral de Miranda do Douro, construída no reinado de D.João III; o Castelo de Miranda do Douro, reedificado no reinado de D. Dinis, por volta de 1280; a muralha erguida no século XVII, a envolver o núcleo antigo da cidade; a Torre de Menagem e o Paço Episcopal.

It was a sign of things to come for the Chicago Bears, whether in the near or distant future.

Labeled the third-team quarterback and a developmental project at the outset of training camp, rookie quarterback Mitchell Trubisky took snaps with the second team on Wednesday as the Bears completed a full week of practices.

”Don’t read too much into it,Alshon Jeffery Jersey” coach John Fox said. ”It’s just a matter of getting guys through different centers, different groups.

”It’s something that we mentioned would happen at some point throughout camp.”

The Bears traded up to the second pick in the first round to select Trubisky out of North Carolina in the 2017 draft, so his progress is important even if the plan is to let him learn behind starter Mike Glennon and backup Mark Sanchez.

It has been an up-and-down process to this point.

On Saturday, Trubisky fumbled three snaps in one drill, and then fumbled the next day again.Jordan Howard Jersey He has since been steadier since then.

”He’s learning a whole new offense,” Fox said. ”A whole different NFL coverage package that we see, a little bit more extensive types of coverages.Kyle Long Jersey So I think the guy’s done everything he can. He’s improving every day.

”He’s got a great work ethic. He learns quickly and works hard. You can’t ask for much more.Danny Trevathan Jersey

Trubisky blamed himself for the fumbles, although they came with different players at center. One of the concerns over Trubisky heading into the draft was his inexperience taking direct snaps from center, because he played in the shotgun in college.

”It was frustrating because that was uncharacteristic of me and I’ve just got to handle that,” Trubisky said. ”They were just wasted plays and I was kind of frustrated because I kind of wasted a team session right there and I didn’t allow myself or my teammates to get better.
