Photographer's Note

Here's my first post of this event this year. In spite of the difficulties, this year I'm going to show how it looks like in the night. It's all illuminated and the atmosphere there is just wonderful, as most part of the visitors go away as soon as the night comes. But this time, after taking a few shots,it really started raining a lot, so I had to finish my mission.
Anyway, here's the first one, showing two characters that are placed in the main square. In background we can see the Church of Nossa Senhora da Lagoa, the main church of the village.

This is an event that usually attracts many people to Monsaraz. It has around 40 real size characters, created by the sculptor Teresa Martins, that are placed all through the village. You can find them in the most amazing places. There are beggers sitting on the stairs of the church, a woman taking water from the well, women and children in the streets... and the main characters right near the entrance of the castle.
