The microclimate of these two fajãs is characterized by the abundance of water (including streams and waterfalls) favoring the agricultural use of land and allow crops of excellent quality and rare in the Azores, such as coffee. These ex-libris constitutes a geosite of the Azores Geopark, with national relevance and scientific, pedagogical and geotouristic interest. For those who are coffee lovers, in Fajã dos Vimes you can visit the only coffee plantation in Europe, as well as the Casa de Artesanato Nunes, where the famous high point quilts are produced on old looms.
