Each year, in the month of August, the women from Viana do Castelo dress their best traditional costumes, wear their richest jewellery and show them off in the parades of the local festivities in honor of Our Lady of Agony. These social and cultural performances, with economic and emotional roots, are associated with the usage of gold ornaments, so particular to that area, and produce one of the most solid expressions of the portuguese popular culture.
