The People’s House of Apúlia was founded on August 19, 1940. Apúlia-born António Torres created it to function as a welfare institution for the rural world. It statutorily covers the parishes of Apúlia, Fão, Fonte Boa and Rio Tinto. With the official extinction of the Trust of the People’s Houses, the Central Government acquired, by law, administrative autonomy and the building became part of the association.
Since its foundation, it has rendered invaluable services to the communities of Apúlia, Fão, Fonte Boa and Rio Tinto, in the area of social security, with a medical office and nursing service. Currently, it is a Culture and Sports Centre and maintains the Folklore section with the Sargasso catchers’ Group of the People’s House of Apúlia, founded in 1934, and the Children’s Group of the Sargasso catchers of the People’s House of Apúlia, founded in 1984.
