Portugal Local Customs: 174 reviews and 235 photos


It is at the feasts, fairs and festivals in the region of Minho that the Minhotan, particularly the woman, wears her best clothes. The Vianese costume is only worn on these or other special occasions, namely at exhibitions of a folklore nature. The gracious feminine costumes are incomparably colourful, whether they come from the coastal area or from the beautiful Lima valley.
