Photographer's Note

This is one of the biggest pilgrimages in the south of Portugal, the Pilgrimage on Horseback. The pilgrims leave from the church of Nossa Senhora da Boa Viagem, in Moita, and they travel around 150 kms on horseback or on carts, till they reach the Sanctuary of Nossa Senhora d'Aires, in Viana do Alentejo. It's an old tradition, because in the old days, the farmers used to do it to pray for their cattle and their crops. The journey takes several days and they are too many.
