Characterised by its small thatched triangular houses, Santana is a beautiful village on the north coast. These small houses built of natural stone and thatched with straw have served the locals for centuries as stables and dwellings.

This region lives essentially from agriculture, craftwork and tradition. The mountainous landscapes are dominated by the lush green that characterises the Laurissilva Forest, which was classified ‘World Heritage’ by the UNESCO, encouraging the locals even more to do everything for maintaining their beauty.

It's odd to think that it is 2 months since the holiday to Madeira, and yet I am still posting the pictures of the trip - we are very near the end and I will be able to share with you everything else I have been up to lately.
