  • A small but beautiful museum showing the masks that are still used during carnival but mostly for winter solstice in villages in the northeastern part of Portugal and over the boarder in Spain (some looked scary but amazing). Some costumes are really incredible and detail the characteristics of each village, mixing pagan and christian beliefs. There are similar concepts of costumes around europe, such as with the Mamuthones in Sardinia or the Krampus in the eastern Alps.
  • Musée des masques et château fermés le lundi 19 août !!! , avec des dizaines de touristes frustrés. Dommage ça avait l'air très intéressant, on ne saura jamais. De plus les bars autour sont également fermés, les pieds des remparts, couverts de papiers toilettes ont du servir de toilettes publiques, les poubelles sont pleines et débordent. Quelle vision. C'est nul et irrespectueux pour des visiteurs comme nous. Très mauvaise expérience, très mauvaise image.
