Castle/ Brewery

Building of Public Interest (Castle)
Noteworthy Building (Brewery) -


This building is located at Vila-Adentro, nested inside a part of the old castle walls.


Prior to the brewery, in the 30’s and 40’s, the area had already been a prime location for industry since the late quarter of the 19th century until early 20th century, amongst them a distillery from 1904 to 1935.

In the 30’s, due to the industrialization process intended to modernize the city, a section of the wall was teared down creating a new street – Rua Nova do Castelo – in order to facilitate traffic flow.

This is one of the early examples of reinforced concrete use that, notwithstanding,it has never operated as a factory.

From 1968 to 1992 it was occupied by Cervisul (a beer and wine distributor) and by the Southern Infantry Regiment.

In 1998 / 1999 the building was purchased by the Municipality of Faro.
