Dentro das muralhas, é um museu muito pequeno mas imperdível. Pode ver vários tipos de máscaras e trajes more »Within the walls, it is a very small but unmissable museum. You can see various types of masks and costumes
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.
Mask Museum and Castle Closed On Monday, August 19, !!! , with dozens of frustrated tourists. Too bad it looked very interesting, we'll never know. In addition the bars around are also closed, the feet of the ramparts, covered with toilet papers had to be used as public toilets, the garbage cans are full and overflow. What a vision. It's lame and disrespectful to visitors like us. Very bad experience, very bad image.
