Vista Alegre

The Fete


The 1st July 1824 will always be remembered as the date on which King João VI granted the licence that authorised the building of the Vista Alegre Porcelain Factory. The Factory’s anniversary and the local patron saint, Our Lady of Penha de França, are also celebrated on this date.

This is a very important occasion to the employees of Vista Alegre and the local population. The Our Lady of Penha de França procession is the highlight of the celebrations, which also include cultural activities, entertainment and a sale.
