Faja Ovelha

As most of the parishes on the island, this village developed from a big concentration of population around a small chapel.

The narrow sleepy tracks and alleys that criss-cross the village with its typical houses and beautiful gardens will enchant the curious visitor.

Part of the village is sitting on a rock, of which traditions says that it is protected by Saint Amaro so that Fajã da Ovelha doesnt fall onto the village of Paúl do Mar lying below at the sea side.

Fajã da Ovelha is a beautiful town positioned on the top of a rock facing the southwest.

The village traces its origins to a small ancient chapel dedicated to São Lourenço around, which grew a quite significant additional population.

According to tradition this place is said to be protected by Saint Amaro because it seems that Faja da Ovelha is falling over the cliff above the village of Paul do Mar.

Visit the Miradouro Pico dos Bodes for wonderful scenery a great place for peace and quiet which many people do not know.

Hoppa offers group transfers in Fajã da Ovelha.
