The Madeira region
Agriculture is the most important economic activity of the parish. The most predominant culture is the vine, after the sugar cane that was once strongly established. Sugar cane used to be very important, particularly during the prime of the white gold (sugar) era. During that time, Madeira used to export sugar in very large quantities, and trade for Flemish art, which today is exhibited in Museu de Arte Sacra (sacred art museum, in Funchal).
Besides vine, there other important crops, namely potato (usually known in the island by semilha), sweet potato, beans and other vegetables, as well as fruit trees.
Today, the local population is around 2,000 inhabitants.
The climate is very mild, just like the rest of the Island. However, the winter is a little harsh.
