Brasilia and the West Sights

Museu das Cavalhadas

  • Rua Direita 39

Fodor's Review

This museum displays the outlandish medieval-style costumes worn by participants in the Festa do Divino Espírito Santo. Among the roster of activities are parade and a mock battle between Moorish and Christian mounted knights in a public field that resembles a bullring. (The Christians win every year.)
