On the 4th of July Horta celebrates its 189th anniversary of being elevated to the status of City and District Capital. In the context of the Portuguese Civil War (1828-1834), by initiative of the Duke of Ávila and Bolama, Horta got its status as a reward for the support given to Liberalism. The Câmara Municipal da Horta celebrates this date with a series of events. Besides a series of lectures, award ceremonies there will be concerts and the Horta White Experience festival on Saturday.
