We had an ear popping trip around the countryside, one moment in the valley bottom and a short while later up amongst the clouds. We saw hillsides that had formerly been terraced and cultivated but that now lie abandoned.
In Santana a few of the traditional thatched houses have been maintained as tourist shops. (One being a flower shop where I bought white Watsonia bulbs, agapanthus and other tempting items.)
A front garden filled just with flax; simple but very lovely.
