After the Great Hurricane of 1877 demolished his house in Pietermaai, dentist dr. David Ricardo resolved to build a house at the highest point of Skalo Abou, sturdy as a fortress and elevated on top of an impressive cellar space. The sea would not take this mansion – ‘Villa Maria’ – , which he presumably named after his wife Miriam.
