Fajã dos Vimes

With jagged cliffs, as most of the fajãs on the Saint Jorge island, the inhabitants of Fajã dos Vimes have suffered several large nuisances. The worst of all took place during the 1757 earthquake that totally destroyed the fajã, later rebuilt. The tourist and the nature lover may get acquainted with the typical houses of the fajã and with that harmony, tragic at times, between man and nature.
