Dressed in typical clothes and garments of the time, these colourful characters take part in a historical street parade and representations of different historic events. The sound and smell of gunpowder, artisans markets and equestrian exhibitions are just some of experiences enjoyed by visitors during the celebrations.


Another of the unquestionable stars of the event are the horses which are also dressed in stunning attire, typical of the 19th century, and their elegant riders also wearing their traditional garments.
