What are the fajas de Cabo Girao?
The Fajas de Cabo Girao are the terraced fields that lie directly below the Cabo Girão. These fields traditionally cultivated vineyards, as the cliffs provided both shelter and favourable growing conditions. The Fajas de Cabo Girao were only accessibly by boat until the construction of the Teleferico do Rancho in 2003.
