Gold

Personal memories Minho has the most colourful (and beautiful) costume of Portugal, and Viana do Castelo is proud of its tradition. 

The most interesting detail is that tradition invites women to use all their “richness”, and their necks may hold several kilograms of gold. 

​Of course, nowadays, each woman in traditional parade, is always protected by a few relatives, as personal bodyguards.
