In previous posts, I mentioned how much the Spanish culture appreciates a good dress-up event (see here and here and here). I have even participated in some of this type of tomfoolery, as evidenced by my attendance, with a mask, at a full-on masquerade party for a friend’s 40th birthday.

However, one recent moment walking through the city yielded a more elusive prize… these period-costume soldiers. I was walking by the Torres de Quart and happened upon these folks.

I wish I had known the reason for such awesome costumes, but they had finished some sort of parade in the city to commemorate an event, and now were ready to go have a beer with friends or go home. I was able, however, to get a few quick pictures before they dissipated to enjoy the rest of their day unimpeded by their awesome costumes.
