Easter Sunday in São Brás de Alportel

A sleepy town, a few miles north of Faro, comes to life at Easter. It is an amazing sight, even if you are not religious. Over a mile of the towns streets are made into a carpet of flowers and some making pictures and designs. Then the Church leaders head a parade through the town, accompanied by hundreds of young and old men (and women) carrying what they call Torches of flowers. This is followed by lots of festivities, eating and drinking!
