Masks

Are there any places in the Algarve where I can buy carved wooden masks, carnival masks, or any type of mask like that from Portugal? I collect masks from around the world, and wanted one from Portugal when I am there in June

Apart from the cheap ones, which are offered for sale just before carnaval (in the Chinese shops), I have never seen them here.

Those kind of masks exist in the northeast of Portugal, they are called "caretos", I doubt that you've come across such a thing in the Algarve. Here's the site of the museum in Bragança (portuguese only) museudamascara.cm-braganca.pt/PageGen.aspx…
