“Pauliteiros” Ruler


The Pauliteiros de Miranda do Douro are the inspiration for the Terra de Miranda Museum children’s display. Illustrator Marc Parchow has imagined a game of shadows and light in a set of stamps that represent all the characters involved in this traditional dance.

Watching the Pauliteiros dance is always a unique spectacle. Now they are being given a new life.

The result can be seen in the full range of products designed for the Terra de Miranda Museum.

Pauliteiros – Traditional Portuguese dancers

The pauliteiros dance is part of Miranda’s identity, although it is not exclusive to this region.

The pauliteiros are made up of groups of men or women, who perform dances by beating “paus” (sticks), accompanied by a “gaiteiro” (bagpiper), a “bombo” (base-drum) and “caixa” (drum) player, and may also be accompanied by a “tamborileiro”, who plays a flute and a tambourine at the same time. Some groups also use castanets in some songs and choreographies.

Watching the Pauliteiros dance is always a unique spectacle, not to be missed.
