Located in the parish of Arco de São Jorge, ?quietness and pleasant weather?.
The name Arco de São Jorge was inspired by the configuration of the surrounding hills, of an arch shaped form. It has its own very particular micro-climate, granting this area exceptional conditions for agriculture and tourism, making it the ideal place to rest in one of the existing local accommodation units.
Up to 1676, the land of the today?s civil parish was part of São Jorge, thus the ?addition? ?São Jorge? to its name. Arco de São Jorge became a civil parish on December 28, 1676. Although the exact date is unknown, in the beginning of the 16th century, Arco de São Jorge was already in an advanced stage of its settlement.
Its first small chapel, dedicated to Nossa Senhora da Piedade (Our Lady of Mercy), was located at the current Sítio dos Casais and was erected by Bishop D. Frei António Teles. By royal charter, on January 18, 1740, a parish church was built, as the chapel of Nossa Senhora da Piedade was by then in a deplorable state of preservation.
The new church was blessed on March 19, 1744, by Father Manuel da Costa, and Saint Joseph became the patron saint of this new place of worship.
