This 3872 m2 lot of land is situated at Largo Jaime Melo near the church on the way to the Caldeira. It overlooks the valley of Flamengos, Horta and the Ocean. It has been planted with Cryptomeria Japonica trees abut 20 years ago. These are allowed to be harvested.
In the past the well off families of Horta used to build small cottages as weekend getaways on the mountain. The families would take time to relax and enjoy the view and slightly less warm conditions.
This land has been in the family for a very long time but as time goes by and people migrated to the mainland there is nobody to maintain the plot anymore.
The ruin is tiny but it could be rebuild into a small summer house. We have the people who can assist you in such project.
