We rebuilt the last Manteigas wool factory where the wool is still being woven and weaved using the same traditional machinery and equipment used in the time when the industry was still hand made. The factory, by preserving the past and reinterpreting it, it transformed itself into a history of the future. And it is also a tourist project. Come and visit.
