The modernity of the functions included in the beauty and tradition of the Old Factory Jeronymo Pereira de Campos make this building a great place for performing all kinds of events.

Factory Jerónimo Pereira Campos
The company founded in 1896 by Jerónimo Pereira Campos and her two young children, Henry and John. It born in a period of stagnation, which began with the crisis of 1891 and extends to about 1914.
Despite the slow urban growth and the persistence of the adobe building, the new plant had no competition between the Port and Pampilhosa. It was build with brick and tile . In 1907, when Jerome Pereira Campos dies, the capital of this company shares stood at 15 contos. Four years later, it increased to 30 contos, divided into equal parts by four sons, Richard, Dominic, John and Henry. The factory employed 64 workers.
