Samples of the so-called Architecture or House of Ramo Grande can be found in the municipality of Praia da Vitória.

These are farmhouses with large, detailed, artful masonry works. In many cases, these houses, spread out across Ramo Grande, stand out from the other houses due to their dimensions and additional buildings for rural activities, which are also made out of free stone.

In other locations, other farmhouses and manor houses complete the aristocratic atmosphere of the island. Some of them are now used to accommodate tourists.
