This is the oldest cheese factory in Terceira and it was supposed to be possible to visit the factory, but it's not. You may taste the different cheeses produced there and watch a small part of the factory through a glass.

You can't really see the cheese being made, but the samples were yummy. Buy some cheese and have them cut it and bread, along with the fig sauce to dip it in for a nice snack.
