Photos from Ponta Delgada towards Santana and Machico

In the North East part of Madeira we're still following the coast road.
These photos give an overview of the coast line starting at Ponta Delgada and Boaventura and further to the East towards Machico. On the road one passes places such as Arco de Sao Jorge, Cabanas, Sao Jorge, Santana, Faial and Porto da Cruz.
Every turn of the road reveals a new view on the charming villages, the dramatic coast and the high mountains in the center of Madeira island.

In front of the Photo you see Arco de Sao Jorge.
Ponta Delgada lays on the small promontory.
The view reaches all the way to Porto Moniz.

Potos of Santana

We have taken some photos of Santana because a site about Madeira should always include the typical houses.
These houses have become world famous. They attract many tourists and can be found on many post cards, but personally we found Santana not that much special.
Fortunately there was some kind of celebration upon arrival in village, which made the visit more interesting.
