The parish of Santo da Serra has a very interesting feature: it is territorially divided between the municipalities of Santa Cruz and Machico. In the latter, the town has a total area of 8.65 km².

Its imposing mountainous landscapes, dotted with abundant and exotic vegetation, offer an entire surrounding of beauty to which it is hard to remain indifferent.
There are many private farms in this area, which take advantage of its rural, green and intimate atmosphere.
