Podence – a reference

Tradition Caretos, from 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.
