The parish of Boaventura stands out, in fact, for its unspoiled landscape of intense green and it is no exaggeration when they call it nature’s sanctuary.
With an economy based on agriculture, this parish is also prepared, in terms of services, to welcome tourists, being highly sought after by those seeking a relaxing and restful holidays.
To fully connect with the spectacular nature of Boaventura, there is no better way than to hike along levadas (irrigation channels) such as Achada Grande, Faias, Achad, Alves, Pastel, Achada, Serrão, or Levada Grande. Always exercise due caution. This parish of Boaventura is known for hosting chapels and houses of unequal historical value, and, unfortunately, some have been demolished. The main church of Santa Quitéria was built in 1835 in the place of the former chapel. The ceiling was painted in 1929 by Zeferino Jose Nunes (Cirilho).
With regards to the architectural heritage, one must two manor houses: the Solar dos Banhos, from the end of the XVIII century and turned into a lodge in 1992, and the Solar da Silveira that has the year 1783 carved on its doorway.
