What an amazing building this is! It's made from basalt which fits the environment perfectly. Some of the artifacts are thought provoking and very interesting.

The arts centre contains Portuguese artists work and is very contemporary. It is worth a visit for the building itself and the fantastic views of Calheta.

Wonderful views, great cafe...and very stimulating art, both semi-traditional and modern. If you are not into art, just go visit the cafe and admire the area.

There are many beautiful buildings in Madeira which enhance the scenery. This is the exception. Hard blocks of uncompromising stone. Walking between them felt like walking in a prison. The views from the Center are fantastic, and that was really what brought us here. Don't...More
