Pencil Factory

Updated: Feb 21, 2023

How to make a pencil in A factory that defied time?

S. João da Madeira, Aveiro district, 45 km from the city of OPorto, Portugal.

There's a wonderful factory that manufactures pencils. It is the only pencil factory in the Iberian Peninsula.

My childhood was populated by Viarco's pencil. So when I hear about Viarco, like tears see me in the eye.

But Viarco is not just a pencil story. It is a story of inventive people, able to overcome great difficulties in life and make pencils a fascinating object.
