Video of the week #287


Photography: AZUL


In the centenary of October 5, 1910 (in 2010, it is ten years now) Ericeira was the scene of an unprecedented – and it is said to be unique so far – historical recreation of one of the most important episodes that took place in this village.

We are talking about the boarding of the Royal Family for exile, at Praia dos Pescadores, one of the key elements in the Implantation of the Portuguese Republic.

The video that we present here contains the first part of the performance of an event that was decisive for the change of the Lusitanian political regime – the final chapter of this document can be watched here.

Take the opportunity to watch another video (in which Anastácio Franco Casado, Quartermaster of the Merchant Navy, talks about what happened in Ericeira on that date) and to learn about a book on the role of Ericeira and Mafra in the republican rise.
