  • Very interesting museum, everything carefully displayed. The documentary was the best part, which took around 25min. Sunday for free, the other days 2€ p/person. Worth while to learn about Pico past and traditions.
  • Modern and thought provoking museum about a lost tradition. The museum gives good insight on what life of the island was for centuries with good exhibits and media.
