Ribeira Brava

Ribeira Brava is one of the first parishes of Madeira and became an important post on the trade route during the 15th Century. The village prospered in the cultivation of sugar which at the time was the islands primary crop. Ribeira Brava is said to have gotten its name from the wild river that used to flow here and which comes still comes alive after some heavy rains.
