DAY 4: SANTANA

Breakfast at the hotel. Head towards the town of Santana, declared Reserve of the Biosphere in 2011 by UNESCO. This reserve incorporates a terrestrial element, corresponding to the whole surface of the municipality, but also a marine element, which presents a great diversity of natural, human, landscape, environmental and cultural values of local, regional, national, and international interest.

The municipality was for a very long time inaccessible by sea and by land, its inhabitants have preserved characteristics that have not undergone external influences. One of the examples of this isolation is the architectonic style of its typical houses with a thatched roof more commonly known as “Santana’s small houses”. Return to Funchal and overnight.
