Characterised by its reddish colour, this beautiful building was once the residence of the Counts of Calçada.
Later, it was gained by the Madeiran lawyer and collector Dr Frederico de Freitas, with the purpose of exhibiting his valuable legacy of art pieces, which he left to the Region after his death (1978), where we can find several collections of glass, ceramics, metals, sculpture, engraving, painting and furniture.
