Once ruled by the Portuguese, the colonial architecture is still well restored. Given the name of the “Isle of Calm” by the tourism department, it was soon changed to “Ilha de Calma” as a sign of respect to the Portuguese culture that is now endangered. Other than the beaches, the place is famous for colonial time cathedrals, caves and forts.
