Procession of Our Lord of Wounds (Nosso Senhor das Chagas)
Next monday, May 4th in Sesimbra, will take place a very old procession in honour of our local saint, Senhor das Chagas and I'm not sure if the right translation will be Our Lord of Wounds but if not is something very similar. During this procession, several men will carry he saint itself through the streets decorated with rosemary. The streets where the procession will pass will be also decorated with bedspreads with roses at the windows.
If you are on holidays on monday and you are nearby Sesimbra, I will suggest you to came and see this procession. Beside all this, is available to visit the carnival fair that take place during the following week before our local bank holiday with carousels and caravans with 'junk' food at bus terminal in Sesimbra. Came to visit us!
