Visit the Ribeira Faja da Areia - Great Northern

The Ribeira Faja da Areia located in the parish of Great Northern, on the north coast of the island of São Jorge.
Faja is a large and a very long time inhabited. In the year 1891 had 451 inhabitants. This as well as some other coves on the island of St. George was practically abandoned, not only due to the earthquake of 1980, but also as a result of an aging population and the disaffection of young people.
Yet many families still live in fajã.
The cultures that make this fajã are sweet potatoes, and potato land, the vineyard and the yam.
