Original title: Para Que Este Mundo Não Acabe

“Come see this world end!” wrote António Fontes, priest of the popular medicine and “witch hunter” from Vilar de Perdizes, as a desperate appeal in his precious monographs of Barroso’s region. And so I went and saw the people and their land, a haunting discovery and a heartbreak. “God is good but the devil isn’t bad at all!”, I learnt from these big, strong and generous people of community habits. I also learnt that there is no fairest place for a life demand and even fleeting happiness which, guaranteed, will be possible on this land.
