In the hills behind Câmara de Lobos the village gets the name of Estreito, which means strait, maybe because it follows a narrow valley.
Its reputation comes from several restaurants
Staying not far from Funchal, Estreito de Câmara de Lobos is the centre of Madeira wine producing.
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
