D. Duarte attended the exhibition that jewelers Tous are organizing at the Palace of Palhavã. It's entitled "Tous: Jóias para Vinte Poemas" and it's promoted by the Spanish Embassy in Lisbon. The event was also attended by Maria Zurita (niece of King Juan Carlos) and Eugénia Martinez de Irujo (daughter of the Duchess of Alba)

Notícias de Vila Real | Notícias | “Trilho do Condestável” a 31 de Maio em Salto

Today, D. Duarte is inaugurating in Salto (Montalegre) the “Trilho do Condestável”, a pedestrian way recommended by the Portuguese Federation of Hiking, which integrates some sights associated to D. Nuno Álvares Pereira.

Here's another article: Mensageiro NotÃ*cias - D. Duarte em homenagem ao "Santo Condestável"

Even though he is not a sailor, D. Duarte was one of the honour guests in the dinner organized by the Nautic Club of Cascais. He represented the royal family, since king D. Luís and his son D. Carlos were deeply linked to this seaside village:

D. Duarte visited Portalegre and criticized the lack of investment in this region.
The trip included a series of visits to the churches of S. Lorenço and S. Francisco, to Santa Casa da Misericórdia of Alegrete and to the social enclosure of Santo António. This visit concluded with a dinner with the supporters of the monarchist cause.

Thanks for the thread.

This Friday TRH the Dukes of Bragança, with their children and van Uden cousins attended the XII Royal Bullfight, that this year took place in Évora, the town where last year Diana de Cadaval and Charles-Philippe d'Orléans got married.

It was a really good bullfight and had a particular innovation.
Instead of a band as it was usual, the musical part was performed by 3 guitarr palyers and some fado singers.

Bullfights and Fado are two great portuguese traditions, they've been hand in hand for ages, but it was the first time that a fado replaced the more usual zarzuelas.

As in the old Coca-Cola advertisement, that portuguese speaking participants will recognize:
"Primeiro estranha-se , depois entranha-se "

At first you find it a bit odd, then you adhere.

Perhaps the oddity has to do with the fact that bullfights are more a Spanish tradition (just like zarzuelas), rather than Portuguese... They may be somehow appreciated in the South, bur not really in the whole contry. People from the North generally despise bullfights... But then again, fado is also really not a national tradition; it's traditional in the South (or should I say Lisbon), so perhaps they work together anyway.


On another note, D. Duarte and D.ª Isabel attended the presentation of Jaime Nogueira Pinto's book about D. Nuno Álvares Pereira:

Bullfights are an iberian tradition, meaning Portugal + Spain and not more a Spanish one rather than Portuguese.
And bullfights have not been confined to Portugal and Spain.
In a lesser scale you will find them in France and in many ex spanish colonies in America.
I agree that "we" did not "export" it to Brazil but I am aware that there were bullfights in Angola and Mozambique before 1974.

And it is not completely true that bullfights aficionados are mainly in the south.
Póvoa do Varzim near Porto has one of the greatest bullfight rings in Portugal and certainly the largest in the north.
People in the north may not have so much aficion but that does not mean they despise bullfights .

The same happens in Spain.
When I was in Barcelona, I was told that in Catalonia bullfights are not at all popular, not that locals despise them, they just don't give them the importance like their fellow countrymen in Madrid, Extremadura or Andaluzia, not forgetting those mad people of Pamplona .

Like a bullfighter after a corrida I give you

Hello everyone!

I know this is not a thread about bullfights but I just wanted to say that IMO, these are not a tradition in Portugal. Some people like it, some attended these shows (especially in Alentejo, south of Portugal) , but the majority of the Portuguese people don't see it as a tradition.
I would say that, soccer is a portuguese tradition

I dislike when royals attend these corridas...
I know they have the right to be there and enjoy it as much as they want, but I wonder if they attend them because they really like to see a bull being punished or because the corridas are related to the old and good times in Portugal?

The Irish nuns of my catholic school used to say that... the bullfighters should be punished by saint Francisco de Assis. hehe!

Yes, I agree with you, Regina (even if JSP will agree to disagree )...

From my own perception, and aside from the South (where more people seem to enjoy them), bullfights in Portugal are essencially a Marialva thing, which is confined to a dozen monarchists and "pedigree" families, who go to these bullfights twice a year, because "noblesse-oblige" and they were taught from the cradle to love horses and bulls, along with the "holly F trinity": Fado, Fátima and Family

Marialvas are a minority in Portugal, though...

These are the photos published by Caras, which JSP mentioned above:

What do you exactly mean with "Marialva"?
That's interesting: the 3 F!! (Fatima is related to the sanctuary, right?)
I must again say how much I appreciate the way of living of the dukes of Braganca: there is no other non-reigning royal whith so many "royal" duties and the duke seems to have good and frequent relationships with much of the gotha!
I know I am ridiculous with my royal-to-royal wedding plans even for very young royals, but guess what I thaught seeing that photo of the Bragancas with the Habsburgs..

Marialva is a Portuguese social stereotype, who takes the name after a literary character of José Cardoso Pires ("A Cartilha do Marialva"). He's characterized as a privileged man, who lives on the shadow of the family's name and estates; Marialva embodies a kind of provincialism and feudal vision of the Universe, governed by principles of authority, divine hierarchies, national heroes and family tradition... all envolved in a perfect "pax ruris"...

I once read a funny article about "Marialvismo", where the author described the "marialva-playboy" as a "pedigree" guy who was born in Ribatejo, Alentejo or somewhere else around Tejo , and who has 3 favourite animals:
1. horses,
2. women (whom he considers as a kind of pure-bred mare ),
3. bulls.

Curiously enough, he considered the Câmara Pereira guy as the best marialva specimen: a misoginous fadista, who is fond of bullfights and whose ultra-conservative political ideas would be somewhwere between rural municipalism and Catholic monarchy

It's a stereotyped vision, of course... But i'd just thank God they are a minority
