The parish is rich in traditions prevailing a quiet community life, particularly in areas along the coast of Lagido, arches and Kid's name.

The names of these places are derived from active volcanic features that existed for many years.

So Lagjido came from the large expanse of lajes in the soil, as a result of solidification of volcanic lavas.

Arches, so designated by the existence of three arches, all in a row, in the low end, and that the coast wear time did disappear. Kid name derived from the existence of a rock looking like a kid.
