On the terraces which separate the mountain of the littoral appears also the cane with sugar, rare on this northern littoral of the island.

After Bridged Delgada, the coast takes an aspect even more austere. The road passes at the bottom of an immense vertical, dark and wet cliff.


Igreja de Senhor Bom Jesus
First Sunday of September, pious Madériens fills the church of the Lord Jesus (1910) to be collected in front of a fragment of crucifix considered miraculous. The cross would have failed in the middle of the 15th century on the shore; a sanctuary was devoted to him, which burned in 1908. The fire did not save the crucifix of which only remained a calcined small piece which, safe from a pane, became one of the most important relics of the island.
