“Testifying the indigenous lifestyle”
“Feu Hermanos” factory “We have travelled through the city and visited some factories that, here, are great monuments testifying the indigenous life ” In João Arruda, Cartas d’um viajor, 1908.
In his journey memoirs, João Arruda gave this testimony about the role played by the canning industry in Portimão in the beginning of the 20th century. Only six years had passed since the inauguration of the “Feu Hermanos” factory, property of two brothers from Andalusia: Cayetano and Antonio Feu Marchena. The factory had also a workshop where were made the cans for the sardines and the tuna. The workers were almost only women. With the work of their hands, they turned fresh fish into tinned fish that were exported to the rest of the World. In 1996, the building was bought by the Municipal Council and it became a museum, openned in 2008.
