Mercado Medieval Óbidos

Medieval Weapon, Dress and Armor Display by the "Ordem da Cavalaria do Sagrado Portugal" (something like Chivalry's Order of the Sacred Portugal)

They did 3 small combats, with axe and mace, swords and daggers.

The fights were not simulated but real fights, the weapons didn't have cutting edges for protection and the third man prevented them from accidentally falling on the audience.
