Ricky Hanson Santana House Madeira Portugal

 Santana is famous for its traditional homes with bungalow rooftops that are made out of straw that extend down to the ground, making them triangular in shape.

Ricky Hanson Santana House

They are mainly rural houses, used by farmers in the past. These houses have white walls with red doors and windows and blue trim. Most of these houses are tourist attractions. The straw roofs are renovated every four to five years.

We pick up from the hotel and head to Câmara de Lobos, a traditional fishing village, located five kilometers from Funchal. 

Further along the road between Funchal and Câmara de Lobos and towards the hills, stands the Cape Girão. This Cape is the highest cliff in Europe and second in the world. 

After this, we go to Ribeira Brava: a small village on the southwest coast of the island, where we visit a church from the fifteenth century. The village has several cafes and terraces for you to enjoy a little (around forty-five minutes). Then, we climb to the plateau at 1500 meters, Paul da Serra, located in the central-eastern part of the island.

 It is the flattest part of Madeira and has fabulous views of mountains and green valleys, which contains one of the largest nature reserve parks in the world! 

Then we go to Porto Moniz where we stop for two and a half hours for lunch and to enjoy. If you choose the volcanic pools of salt water at this point you have long enough to rest, go for a little stroll and relax. Our route then continues until Seixal. Along the way, we can see several waterfalls and then we stop for twenty minutes.

We then turn our gaze to São Vincente, one of the most predominant villages of the north coast of Madeira, where you will be able to visit the church, built in the seventeenth century. Finally we turn to Encumeada, one of the stops where you can see an incredible view of the south coast and north coast of our beautiful island. 

Return to Funchal.

While in Lisbon we saw lots of beautiful churches, colorful streets, red tile roofs, and old historic places like Castelo de São Jorge which sits above the entire city and the views down to Lisbon are amazing.
