“Cerca dos Frades” is the designation for a parcel of land given by the population to the friars during its installation, at the behest of King D. Pedro III, in Santa Luzia on Pico Island. Faced with the request for an “area the size of an ox's skin”, the people willingly gave in until they realized the cleverness and cunning of the friars: they cut the ox's skin into very narrow strips, forming a long cord with which they surrounded the area they intended.

These vines grow on those same fences.
