One of the main highlights of Santana councils, the typical stalk-covered houses with gabbled roofs, supported by wooden structures, are also called “palhaças”. These constructions are said to be vestiges of the primitive wooden and stalk structures. This raw material is used, because there are few hard rocks in this region and Winters are cold. Therefore, these houses can adapt to different weather conditions, for they are cool in the Summer and hot in Winter.
