Podence – Land of great traditions


Tradition Podence and Caretos

Caretos - Podence

In a “lost” village of Trás-os-Montes, the young men dress strange costumes to provoke the girls with bells during the Carnival. 

This remote and strange tradition is kept and got curiosity and acceptance all over the country. 

​I met them in Portalegre, animating a cultural event far from Carnival.

Website: Careto

Reading about the village, it is found that it is located in an area with a beautiful landscape, but the highlight is Carnival, which means that it will continue to be a well-known place, but still to be visited.
