2022 Feast of the Blessed Sacrament – 106th Celebration

Museum Café Entertainment

Museum Café located in the cobblestone courtyard just south of the building. This beautiful section of the museum grounds was finished a few years ago and reflects many of the patterned mosaic stone streets and walkways of the cities and towns in Madeira. Volunteers from the Museum and Feast Committees will be on hand to serve wine, cool drinks and espresso and cappuccino. Tasty Portuguese pastries will also be offered. Quiet Madeiran and other music create a calming atmosphere where conversation is easy at comfortable bistro style tables. Impromptu performances by the club’s Grapo Folclorico Madeirense are a cherished treat. Renowned local fado singers are regular guests at our café singing the soulful Portuguese music.
