VIANA DO CASTELO, PORTUGAL - 2016/08/21: Inhabitants from Viana do Castelo participate on the Ethnographic Historical Parade, during the second day of the Festival of Our Lady in Sorrow Festival. This religious festival, one of the oldest and most distinctive festivals of Northern Portugal, attracts many people to this city over the five days. Some of the figures of the Ethnographic Historical Parade are carnival giants, strange enormous figures that first came from Santiago de Compostela more than a hundred years ago to enliven the festival.
