Death, Devil and Censorship | March 6, 2019

This social, recreational and cultural initiative aims to restore the tradition of Death, the Devil and Censorship in the historic areas of Bragança. There are historical references dated 1870 in which, on Ash Wednesday, men disguised as death, devil and censure chased and punished the maiden girls with belts. They, in turn, pricked the masked men and hid in the houses to prevent punishment.

We will support this initiative and recreate this tradition already forgotten by many. The recreation takes place in the historic areas of Bragança on the 6th of March this year, the event starts at 14:00 and runs until 18:00.
