One of the most isolated villages in Sao Nicolau, some seven kilometers northwest of Ribeira Brava.
After climbing the trail visible on this image you have to descend more or less the same distance on the other side to reach Covoada.
Many villagers walks the distance every day, with or without donkey !! Cape Verde, June 17.

Is this Estancia Bras? That is the village that my grandmother is from. She came to the U.S. in 1924 or so.
Hi Carol. No this is the trail between Covoada and Faja. We passed Estancia Bras (at the coast)at the beginning of our
day-long walk which ended in Ribeira Brava.
Thanks for your visit.
