Caza des Vellas Pear Candle
Caza des Vellas Loreto, Lisbon was founded in 1789, coinciding with the beginning of the French Revolution, a remarkable date that is full of symbolism. On opening, the main objective was to illuminate the streets of Lisbon with candles, as gas and electricity would come many years later.
When stumbling upon the shop on the outskirts of the city of Lisbon I never wanted to leave. If only I wasn’t on easyjet with one bag booked. It’s like a sweetshop for later life. Too beautiful to light.
