Ribeira Chã

The village of Ribeira Chã has a little more than 350 inhabitants. However, this is a factor of cohesion that propitiates the work together and makes the parish live the true concept of community.

Here you can smell the smell of earth, flowers and the aromas of good traditional cuisine. All this can still be felt as if from a little paradise we were talking. But Ribeira Chã monitors the progress of the Autonomous Region of the Azores, holding the technologies and services of a society in progress. We have the honor of being one of the communities that best cherishes its past and uses it to project the future. Culture, crafts, heritage, the environment and gastronomy are respected aspects that make us a model to follow. We are pleased to say that we are considered a “Parish-Museum”, a living crib that blossomed from nature and that our community knows how to care for and make it an attraction for those who visit us. It is a living lesson in history and knowing that it dazzles anyone. There is no shortage of good reasons to share with us some of our experiences. It is an experience worth living for.
