Caza das Vellas Loreto (1789)


This workshop is so old, so old that the name has survived almost every spelling agreement. Prior to the arrival of electricity in Lisbon, it is in the sixth generation of the Sá Pereira family. The license for its opening required the store to have two torches lit at night to illuminate the street, at a time when the city was much darker as the sunset. In those times, the candles were of tallow, which emanated an unpleasant smell. From France, the founder Domingos Sá Pereira brought the technique of making candles with beeswax, still today the ex-libris of the house, pardon, hunting. There are candles for all tastes and budgets, but not just wax lives the business. Here wicks are still made for oil lamps.
