Route of the Wonderful World of Figures of Barcelos
The wonderful world of figures opens the door into the uniqueness folk art of Barcelos. A world of creativity that challenges our imagination. These pieces are replicas made by the sculptor Albino Miranda, of some of the most emblematic pieces produced by our master artisans, which deserve to be appreciated at their best in every square, avenue, roundabout and other public spaces in the city. Devils and whistles, roosters and giant carnival puppets, women of Minho, cuckoo and medusa. This is a rich cross between fantasy and reality translated into a colourful and lively expression of the local people’s tradition. This is our living museum. Let yourself be enchanted by the wonderful world of figurative art and by this UNESCO Creative City.
