Halfway from Bragança and Mirandela, in the municipality of Macedo de Cavaleiros, the most interesting detail about Podence is the tradition and costumes of its people by carnival.

Ninety-nine percent of Portuguese people have never been (or will go) to this village, but have heard about it.

The curious tradition is common knowledge, and every year the media repeats a visit and all TV channels spend a few seconds showing them. Fame has made the caretos of Podence a national attraction.

Highlights in Podence:
