Crusaders ride down a Portuguese high street – with police escort


Here are a group of crusaders and Templars riding down a high street in Portugal on their way to the annual medieval fair at the town of Santa Maria da Feira.  I went last year and it’s amazing. If you play the whole video, you get to see somebody playing the very powerful medieval Portuguese archbishop Joao Peculiar (yes, his surname really was ‘peculiar’). He is a character in my book Quest for the True Cross and looks very impressive in this video.

I’m hoping to get to Santa Maria da Feira again this year and recommend it to all of you – great live battles between Templars and Saracens.
