What looks like a very ugly building perched high above Calheta houses a fascinating exhibition of Contemporary Portuguese Art. The inside of the building belies its ugly exterior and it makes great use of modern wooden flooring. The exhibits are well spread out with plenty...More

As mentioned in the previous comments this place is well worth visiting but finding the entrance is a challenge! It isnt sign posted at all . The art is to my liking but probably not to all. Give it a go you might learn something
