The Executive Board visits Porto Pim Whale Factory

On November 19th 2018 the Executive Board visited Porto Pim Whale Factory, in Faial Island. This was a deep intervention that aimed at valuing the existing pieces and machines. It was an interesting visit to one of the various structures that are arising in the Azores and that should be brought together around a joint effort.

Located at the interior of Porto Pim Bay, at Angústias parish, and run by the Sea Observatory of the Azores, this former industrial unit holds an important collection associated with Azorean whaling history and promotes several cultural activities in its facilities.
