Typical of older times, now only used during celebrations and festivals, the Vianese costume is a symbol of colour of this Northern Minho region, notoriously renowned for the use of gold and wealth of detail.
You may enjoy it in this small space which holds many other secrets of the soul of Viana do Castelo, including a weaver’s loom used to produce the fabrics for those costumes, a typical Minho pilgrimage bier and replicas of old Viana dishes as well as other charming pieces.
The care with which these pieces have been maintained and cherished over many decades, speaks well not only the Minho spirit, but also for the very soul of Casa do Ameal.
