Property info

Graciosa had a lot of cereal and the need to produce bread led to the construction of windmills to turn the cereal into flour. There were about thirty on the whole island. Ours dates from 1903 and worked until 1950's.

Neighborhood info

There is not much to do besides walking, see the sights and appreciate the landscape. In summer, the beach invites us for a good swim in the warm water (about 24 degrees). A fishing rod can also be of good use!
