Calheta

Since imposing hotels have been built and two golden sandy beaches set up, Calheta has transformed into a seaside resort. The church, built in 1639, stands at a short distance from the sea and has a beautiful Mudejar ceiling. With many vistas out to sea, the slate grey building, designed by Paulo David, houses the Centro das Artes Casa das Mudas, which presents a rich permanent collection of work by Portuguese artists from the 1960s to the present day.
