Nature & Geology
The principal source of wealth in Calheta is fishing and agriculture. The main one is cheese production, a delicacy well known on the island thanks to happy cows grazing in green fields all year long. Cheese is the local specialty that you need to taste, especially if you like strong ones.
In fact, São Jorge’s cheese is cured from 3 months to 3 years! They have a very unique taste and there are so many of them that you will certainly find your favorite one.
