The history of Peratallada is closely linked to the medieval era. It is in this period when we have the first testimonies written about the town. Some 10th century documents mentioned it by the names of «Petra scissa» and «Petra tallada». The castle of Peratallada, around which the town settled, was the centre of the barony that belonged to the aforementioned lineage of Peratallada, documented from the 11th century.

The village remembers this connection with a period fair that is celebrated on the first weekend of October and uses the streets and squares of the old town as the setting, where it is still possible to capture the essence of that period.
