Santana Travel Guide: 31 reviews and 69 photos
Named after St. Anne, mother of the Virgin Mary, Santana is a village of hedgerows and flowers on the north eastern side of Madeira Ilsand. Complete with waterfalls, cobble-stoned streets, luch green meadows and plunging ravines, it is maybe one of the most picturesque and caracteristic villages in Europe.
With their thatched roofs and wood-pannelled interiors, the famous triangular shaped houses of Santana are a must see attraction in Madeira. These Casas de Colmo are made from straw. More than 100 of them still excist, thanks to a tourism initiative to reward the best-kept house. Some open their door to visitors and we we very surprised by the amount of available space inside.
