Brava

City / Village

Fajã d'Água

Date

January 1981

Description

Fajã d'Água photographed from the shoreline shows the green landscape, terraced farming and close proximity of the houses to the water. Because the village lies at the foot of a steep mountain, it is sheltered from the fierce winds that are devestating to much of the vegetation on Brava, especially in light of recent droughts.
