After breakfast, board your private transfer to enjoy a city tour through the cities of Aveiro and Ovar, visit the stunning Igreja de Válega and finish the day with a visit to the Vista Alegre factory complex.
Founded in 1824, the patent authorizing the operation of the Vista Alegre Factory was granted in 1824 by King D. João VI, benefiting of “all graces, privileges, and exceptions enjoyed, or to be enjoyed in the future, by the National Factories”. Then, only five years later, Vista Alegre was granted the title of Royal Factory, to honor its art and industrial success. From 1832 on, the Factory intensified its work and concentrated on perfecting porcelain. In 2001, Grupo Vista Alegre joined with the Atlantis group and created the largest national tableware Group and the sixth in the world in this specialty: the Grupo Vista Alegre Atlantis. Here, you will also have the possibility to have a hands-on experience.
