Founded in 1572, the parish of Arco da Calheta is set between the mountains, the configuration of which is a semi-circle. The arc like nature and it's proximity to the parish of Calheta motivated the first settlers to call it Arco da Calheta (Calheta arch). After the discovery of the island this parish was one of the first to be submitted to huge agricultural explorations, giving origin to extensive lands with noble houses, chapels and cultivated areas.

The busiest time of the year is the 7th and the 8th of September when the parish celebrates its annual procession and a fair to honour the patron saint São Braz.
