São Vicente

Although considered a coastal village, São Vicente has progressed with time into the more sheltered hinterland.

At the edge of the village directly next to the sea lies a great boulder, into which the São Vicente chapel was built.

The council of São Vicente consists of the parishes of S. Vicente, Ponta Delgada and Boaventura. A trip through this council reveals a cultural patrimony left by all those who helped to enlarge these three parishes that it encompasses.

Most of the rustic manor houses go back to the XVIII century, a time of economic relief and comfort, due to the good fortunes of viticulture. These gigantic houses were very ostentatious and consisted of two levels: On the first floor the winepress, the agricultural implements and the products of the harvests were kept. The second floor was the noble part of the house and the access was made through an outdoor staircase.
