The Lisbon Museum - Palácio Pimenta, the Puppet Museum and the São Jorge Castle were the stage for lively live performances by masked, dance and music groups, in an adapted version of the International Festival of the Iberian Mask - which has been bringing since 2006 to Lisbon groups of masks mostly from lands of Portugal and Spain. Coming from Miranda do Douro, Asturias and Galicia, the revelers shared a whole colorful universe of ancestral traditions, showing their historical, cultural and artistic richness.
