Replica do Caique Bom Sucesso


Replica do Caique Bom Sucesso


On 6 July 1808, a group of fishermen from Olhão boarded the Caique Bom Sucesso, a fishing boat approximately 20 metres in length and 5 metres wide and with 2 sails. They crossed the Atlantic Ocean to Brazil to inform King João IV, who was in refuge there at the time, that the population of Olhão had managed to drive out the French invaders.

As a reward for such a brave feat, the king granted Olhão the charter of “Villa da Restauração” or “Town of the Restoration”, making it administratively independent from Faro.

The replica of the Caique Bom Sucesso is currently anchored in Olhão Marina.
