The former Municipal Market currently houses the Vila do Bispo Interpretation Centre. The building, which dates from the early 20th century, played a predominant role in the social and economic fabric of the municipality for around 70 years. Symbolically, it was restored to house a public service of a cultural nature which, in partnership with the local community, focuses on consolidating the collective memory and cultural identity of the local people. Two exhibition rooms and an information area are open to visitors. There is also a mini-auditorium where images of an ethnographic, environmental and historical/cultural nature may be viewed.
