Was a bit disappointing to have a couple of houses displayed in a Disneyland style… we missed information on the history and background. We walked through the rest of town and found actual old houses that were far more interesting

We visited these houses as part of an excellent ‘Madeira East Tour’ which I plan to review separately. Our tour guide explained that these have been built in the style of the typical houses once found all over the island. But they are fakes! Each incorporates a different retailer or small exhibition. A wine shop, flower shop, a souvenir shop etc. We were later taken to an actual Casa Tipica nearby which has been in the same family for over 250 years. This gave a much better insight into the lives of such families. Though they don’t still live in it, members of the family showed us round & explained how they used the spaces. The furnishing and photos recalled an earlier life. Seek it out if possible ( maybe ask your guide). No entry charge, but donations accepted.

Cute, little and colourful houses in the centre of Santana. However, inside you will find souvenir shops rather than some traditional furniture. The entrance is free.

Having had lunch in Santana town during our 4WD tour we had a quick look around the typical Casas Tipicas houses which have been renovated to what they would have historically been. They are very much aimed at tourists with a number of the properties having been converted into shops. Interesting to have a look but not exceptional.

Saturday 19th June and we visited Santana, which is located on the north side of the Island.

It is famous for it's Casas Típicas de Santana, the traditional style of house. Which is built in stone with a steep triangle shaped thatched roof.

One of the town's attractions is a small gardens, alongside Santana City Hall, which exhibits examples of the enchanting houses.

One of the houses is a florist shop, with a colourful garden.

Nice to have a quick wander around, thought it was going to be a lot better than it actually was.

Have posted a picture of an actual house (green door and shutters) along with the touristic one from the gardens.

Nice, traditional Madeira houses, which look beautiful but that's it 🤷 You can go inside and see traditional forniture, buy some merchandise and the most importantly take a selfie or two 😉 Houses have a lot to say historicaly speaking, but don't go to Santana just to see the houses ...

These houses are well preserved and put in a nice setting. It lacks the vintage of it but still well presented.

Although we had been to Madeira before it was nice to be able to see these traditional houses again. We were staying in a nearby hotel so it was just a short walk away.

A trip to Santana is a must do when in Madeira but manage your expectations ahead of going. The main cluster of Casas Tipicas are in a small area of Santana, have been renovated and are very much geared at tourists, having been converted into shops. They are beautiful and rather unique but you won't have the place to yourself as it really is just tourists who come here. While you are in Santana however, its worth taking a stroll around the town to see other examples of casas tipicas which are lived in by locals.
