Event Banho Santo/Holy Bath | São Bartolomeu do Mar, Esposende | Date 2012

Holy Bath is a photographic series under the theme “Capturing Portuguese Traditions”, a pagan ritual that takes place in S. Bartolomeu do Mar, Portugal, in August 24th. It is believed that on that day the devil walks on earth, returning to the sea when the sun sets. Thus, during the day, the waters are pure and a dip in the sea, in an odd number of times can prevent diseases and acts as a cleansing ritual.
