SOBRE EL TALLER
This factory produced mainly faience and decorative plates with lively colours which were painted both with stencils and hand painted with artistic designs on the interior. The decorative value of this faience is unquestionable.
SOBRE LA FÁBRICA
Documented in 1840 in the Largo dos Aviadores on the left bank of the river in a building covered with tiles which was also the family home of its owner Gaspar Gonçalves de Castro. In 1877 the factory was inherited by his widow and children and led by Cándido Augusto de Sá Castro. It kept running in the traditional way with a wooden oven. Soon after 1912 it had to cease its production.
