In 1843 was created the "Exposed Wheel House" in Almeida, Guarda, serving a unique purpose, protecting an emerging number of orphans and rejected children. Left on the "Wheel", the newborns would find a new fate. Through this resourceful way, they would be fed and raised by priests and nuns who would never discover the true identity of their parents. After the Wheel they would not be left to chance, they would have a future. This idyllic fanfare recalls the countless children saved by this fostering system, a true celebration of life, in a remembrance of the Almeida's popular theme "Vós Chamais-me Moreninha" and the "Marseillaise", firming the
undeniable infuence of the occupation of French troops in the beginning of the XIX century.
