nova sintra square brava

Main square in Nova Sintra on Brava

Nova Sintra is the main town on the island of Brava. The town is about 750m above sea level and is reached by a hairpin road from the port below. The town is very attractive and the houses are neat and tidy and the gardens well tended. This picture was taken in the main square and shows the colonial nature of some of the buildings. The square is attractively laid out and landscaped. Brava is known as the garden island and it is not difficult to see why it has acquired this description.
