freguesia santana

Freguesia de Santana Beach

Parish of Santana is the name of the small peninsula north of Ilha Grande, where the Retiro is located. It was the first occupied area on the island for coffee, sugar cane and cereal crops, becoming an important settlement in the 18th and 19th centuries. In 1843 the Church of Santana was built, close to the beach that today bears the name of Parish of Santana.
