The Alcáçovas bells date back many years. They are handmade and require a complicated technique in order to obtain the sound, it depends on the thickness of the sheet and the amount of metal used. Each bell features a drawing that represents the craftsman (coat of arms). The bells are used around the necks of some animals (for instance the sheep), that act as guides and join all the others when they are grazing. The bells have different names depending on their size. There are two types of bells: the smalls one and the big ones.
