Modern art is not for everyone. You start on the top floor then go down 3 levels (they do have a lift) the shop was shut and photos are not permitted.... however its only 4 euros, good cafe and fantastic view.

White elephant? I think not. Fabulous building in itself and the art we saw exciting and well hung. Examples below but do visit if you’re nearby - only 4 euros.

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.

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

Spotted the building perched high above Calheta, decided to visit. Wonderful piece of modern architecture which whilst may not be to everyone's taste offers unrivalled views from the terrace down on Calhetta. The building houses an eclectic collection of modern art some disturbing, some thought...More
