Caza das Vellas Loreto is one of the oldest candle shops in the world. Located in Lisbon's Bairro Alto neighborhood, Caza das Vellas Loreto was established on July 14th 1789 - coinciding with the start of the French Revolution. Over seven generations the family-run business is housed (now in a reduced footprint) in the same building where it was founded. The old-world interior with its wooden counter and candle-filled cases fronts the workshop where the handmade candles are produced. The candles come in a variety of sizes, shapes, and colors, with essential oils being used for the scented versions.

"We produce candles to order, tailored to your needs. We sell cult figures, traditional Portuguese and author nativity scenes, ex-votos, figures relating to the various commemorative days."
