Located in the parish of Água de Pena, ?the parish of the fountain?.
The civil parish of Água de Pena was established in 1560 and is one of the oldest and smallest parishes in Madeira.
Água de Pena is associated to an event called ?Água de Pena?, which means water striking on a living rock. There are accounts that state that Fonte do Seixo fountain, a symbolic and representative place in the parish, is the probable place of that natural spring.
Fonte do Seixo was the first place in the parish being visited, when the Island was discovered and the settlement started. In the past, the fountain used to be a meeting point amongst the people, since it served as a water supply point.
There is also a legend that tells that the place was connected by tunnels all the way to the Cavalão caves in Machico.
The church of Santa Beatriz, located at Sítio da Igreja, was erected in 1745, in the former place of Santa Beatriz chapel.
In addition, it is also well worth mentioning the Fontenário (public drinking fountain), which was of great importance to the daily lives of the population, in times when piped water still did not exist. The water was taken home in earthenware containers, on women?s heads, for their household needs.
The most important activities in this civil parish are agriculture, trade, bread-making, civil construction and catering.
The climate is mild, with pleasant temperatures all year round.
Água de Pena has about 2.400 inhabitants, who live in a total area of 5,08 km2 (1.255 acres).
