In Fajã dos Bodes there are people living, but many of them only go down to the fajã during the time of transhumance, coming from Loural to cultivate the land in January, February and March. Following East, we pass by Fajã do Cavalete before starting the ascent to Loural. This place gave its name to the very famous cheese of the island of San Jorge. The cheese of Lourais, which now has its production in the cooperative in the Parish of Ribeira Seca, which still has the same name: Lourais.
Fajã de São João is still inhabited all year round. This is due to its temperate weather and its fertile land for cultivation. It is another of the two places in Europe which produces coffee, as Fajã dos Vimes. This is the end of our walking tour. For those who want to know Fajã da Saramagueira, we can go on for almost 1 hour walk. Who is not interested, you can taste the Angelica (the typical drink of San Jorge) and enjoy the scenery in contact with the locals who stop in this nice typical coffee shop in São João.
