For me it’s a dance. Pra mim é uma dança.
Cavalhada is a fake battle between Moor and Christian knights where they fight over a princess. The Moors horsemen dress in flesh-coloured satin, and the Christian ones in blue.
At the end, independently of the score, the Christians are the winners and the flag with São Benedito’s picture is held by both Moors and Christians.
