Description

The island of São Jorge, due to its terrain and cliffs of its coast, is characterized by the existence of numerous coves, which largely determine the character of the island, creating microclimates and compartmentalising your landscape and determine the areas of attachment of population. These institutions have been used since the beginning of settlement to the specific cultures that did not get the highlands.
