Arco de São Jorge
Of the six parishes that make up the municipality of Santana, the Arco de São Jorge is the smallest measuring only 3.5 km2.
In this agricultural town you can count on rural tourist accommodation, snack bars and mini markets.
It is in this beautiful land that you will find the Vine and Wine Museum. The exhibition tells the history of wine production and simultaneously portrays the connection of the local population to the vine growing.
The town is rich in drinking fountains, fountains where people used to collect water due to the lack of drinking water systems. The most famous are the Enseada, the Quinta and the Fonte da Quebrada.
The viewpoints of the Beira da Quinta, Redondo, Roda da Quebrada and Cabo Aéreo offer exquisite views over the town and the Rose garden in the Quinta do Arco (Arco Manor). This garden owns one of the largest collections of roses in Europe, with about 17,000 rose bushes from common to rare species.
The parish church was built in the 18th century and dedicated to its patron, São José.
