    Known for its striking red colour, this house was once the residence of the Counts of Calçada.

    It was later acquired by Madeiran lawyer and collector Frederico de Freitas to display his valuable art collection, which he bequeathed to the Region upon his death (1978). Visitors to the museum can admire various collections of sculptures, engravings, paintings, furniture and glass, ceramic and metal objects that are on exhibit.

    Ten years after the museum opened, a separate Casa de Azulejos was inaugurated. The structure was built to house a vast, eclectic collection of tiles, including Portuguese, Asian, medieval, majolica and Islamic pieces. Visitors can observe how this type of decorative covering evolved from its early beginnings until today.

    The museum’s Educational Service offers guided tours and fun activities to facilitate communication with the museum-going public and effectively promote the collection.

    banner Funchal, the capital of the Madeira archipelago, was declared a city in the 1500s, and became an important point between the old and new worlds. The laid-back city owes much of its historical prominence to the white gold, the Madeiran sugar. Today Funchal is known for its appealing temperatures, wine and crafts. Top spots to visit include the open Worker's Market, Blandy's Wine Lodge and the Sacred Art Museum. Friendly locals, walkable streets and cheap taxis make the city easy to get around.
