Santana

Santana
The Essential
Situated on a coastal plateau, 436m above sea level, Santana is one of the main villages on the north coast. It is also one of the most popular with tourists, on account of its theme park and its proximity to the Laurisilva. The villagers traditionally lived in quaint wooden cottages with pointed roofs, surrounded by flower-decked gardens framed by box hedges. Some of these buildings have survived, most notably near Queimadas.
