Εarlier that day, the Founder and President of EHICA is going to formally visit the Mayor of Loule, at the Municipality of the city.

It is worth mentioning that the Historic Café Calcinha is a replica of an old Brazilian coffee shop, opened in 1927 and virtually unchanged since, with a gorgeous art deco interior and marble-topped tables. Live fado occasionally takes place at the Cafe. The statue outside depicts António Aleixo, an early-20th-century poet and a former regular of the cafe, sitting at his own bronze table.
