Horta Museum

This museum is housed in the old Jesuitical College, an imposing big-dimensioned building that remained unfinished, because the Jesuits were expelled from Portugal in 1760. The venue integrates several collections related to Faial history, especially the collection of ethnographical works in fig tree kernel (made by a local Faial-born artist) and pieces of other Portuguese artists, such as António Dacosta, Sousa Pinto and Vieira Lusitano.
