On the 25th May, São Brás de Alportel invites everyone to the 3rd staging of the Historical Recreation “São Braz d'Alportel, 1914”!

In this day, São Brás de Alportel will travel back in time, rewinding over a century and recreating the ambience of the city in those days.

The Historical Centre will be transformed into a merry-go-round of entertainment and surprising happenings: street theatre, music, dancing, circus, handicrafts, delicacies and characters from a bygone era await you.

Dress up and participate in the journey back in time!

A journey back in time...

Evoking the establishment of the Republic, the granting of the status of a municipality to São Brás de Alportel and a century of progress and community are the main reason of the 3rd Historical Recreation staging.

The beginning of the century witnessed a time of euphoria, with business opportunities arising at every turn. Cork traders, artists, intellectuals, beggars, acrobats and conjurers made their way to São Brás de Alportel, known in those days as a land of opportunity. There were also times of despondency and decline.  Today, we have all of this. Let's relive that magical time!
