The Império dos Nobres, a unique império in Faial, whose construction dates back to 1759. It was founded based on a resolution of the city council in memory of the eruption of the Cabeço do Fogo volcano in 1672. The council pledged to perpetually hold annually a procession, a holy mass and to distribute alms to the population.

The festivities of the Império dos Nobres start with a procession from the Church of the Santíssimo Salvador to the império. At the império there will be the coronation ceremony followed by the distribution of the alms.
