Known as “Portugal’s most Portuguese carnival”, because of its deeply traditional character, Torres Vedras carnival stands out for its big allegorical cars, the satirical themes, and the caricatures of public personalities. Here you will find the funny “Zés Pereiras”, percussion players, bigheaded characters and the “matrafonas” men dressed like women. The festivities usually start on Friday with the Schools’ corso and last the whole weekend. On Saturday night, the Kings of Carnival receive the “city keys”. Escorted by a great procession, they make their way to the Town Hall to hear the (critical satiric) “Speech to the nation”. On Wednesday, the carnival is buried and the King is judged and convicted. The feast ends with fireworks.
