One of the most emblematic Historic Cafés in Portugal, located in the heart of the city of Loulé.
The history of Café Calcinha merges with the city that saw it born. Between groups and groups, between solitary looks and scalded spouts, Café Calcinha saw two Great World Wars pass and saw the birth of democracy in Portugal. First it was “Central” then the strength of the nickname was stronger than its centrality. Perfect allegory: it was the strength of the human over the strength of the place. A complementarity that never failed him. The rich and the poor. Bernardo Lopes, Pedro de Freitas, Bexiga Peres and the unavoidable Aleixo. And so many more that divided the room in two. Time, democracy and the power of good have erased a line that never really existed and Calcinha arrives in the 21st century ready for another stage. With other directions and with a certainty: The story is here. But the story doesn’t end there. The history of Café Calcinha follows in a moment.
