"Romeiros~Pilgrims" is a contemporary look on the people making Alto Minho in Portugal, a permanent place for party. A romance made of photos, written with an ironic and colourful tone, showing us the age-old traditions in contact with the future, a strong debate between the profane and the sacred. A work by Paulo Alegria in 200 photographies, with texts by Raul Pereira.
