The Experience

Take part in a treasured tradition in the Brazilian beach town of Trancoso with an intimate workshop led by a local artist. The sacred poles of Trancoso, representing the connection between heaven and earth, are the centerpiece of the town's celebrations of Saint Sebastian and Saint Blaise. You and your friends will be working directly with Valquito Lima, who has painted the sacred poles of Trancoso for nearly two decades after learning the art from his grandfather. Learn the history and techniques behind creating the poles, leaving the class with a profound connection to the local culture, as well as a piece created by the artist. Exclusively for Mastercard Black cardholders.
