Santa Maria Museum

Santa Maria Museum

The island Museum is located in the centre of Santo Espírito parish, in an old rural house (20th century). This museological space shows a number of furniture pieces and domestic utensils from a typical Santa Maria house.

It gathers as well an interesting nucleus about day-to-day life, with some ceramic artefacts produced in the various pottery works which once existed in the island and other ethnographic items related to the work on the land, the production of linen and wool and the festivities of the Divine Holy Spirit, brought into context by a series of written and iconographic elements from various time periods.
