Visiting Estreito de C. de Lobos
In the hills behind Câmara de Lobos the village gets the name of Estreito, which means strait, maybe because it follows a narrow valley.
It has an interesting church, a few chapels and “levadas”, but the main touristy attraction… yes, it is the typical kebab.
”Nossa Senhora da Graça” church
The most important monument in Estreito is this church, built in the 18th century.
Some restoring works didn’t change it much, except the tower, that, in 1937, received a clock.
We were received by music in Estreito, and that made us walk a little to find where did it come from.
In a nice square by the church, dominated by a esplanade was performing live music.
It was not the expected popular festivities that it seemed, but we got a favorable idea of that central part of the village.
Eating in Estreito
Santo António- Number one, they say
I was going to Lagar, with my group, when the receptionist at the hotel explained that for the locals santo Antonio is the top one – also excellent food and cheaper.
We changed our plans.
Well, it’s a big and popular restaurant that satisfied all the good expectations.
Favorite Dish: Grilled beef
Website: Santo António
