Santana on Madeira has some of the cutest homes I ever saw. Beautifully maintained, I found it a little sad that I had to queue up for a look inside and to purchase a thimbleful of liqueur, when once such hospitality might have been offered freely. Still, I suppose it’s a small price to pay to preserve these unique homes, with their triangular roofs, thatched in straw. Once they were occupied by local farmers. Now they are a mainstay of tourism in this rugged northern part of the island.
They’re a little different from Jake’s chosen home this week, but equally unique. Pay him a visit? It won’t cost you! Just click on the logo.
