Janela (Capeverdean Crioulo, (written in ALUPEC): Jenéla) is a village in the northeastern part of the island of Santo Antão. Janela is linked with the road linking to Paul and the rest of the island including the island capital of Porto Novo and Ribeira Grande, the road linking directly through the island's easternmost point is treacherous and is accessed only with 4WD or SUV vehicles as well as bikes.
The centre of the village is on a small point that is cliffy to the west and the east and are surrounded by it. Janela's houses are on a hilltop areas, plantations surround the village as well as palm trees. The valley of the Ribeira da Janela is nearly 1 km northwest of the village, it neighbors the valley of the Ribeira do Paúl to the northwest and features palm trees in the middle.
The mountains dominate the area around the village, farmaldns groves dominate the village areas and are located in slopey surfaces that reminds of the Canary Islands and the Far East, grasslands with barren rocks and bushes covers the rest of the area. The mountain cliffs lies around the area with lots to the south and the southeast within the Atlantic. Palm trees are sporadically founded in the valley area. Cliffs and steep and treacherous ledges dominate the edges of its valley areas. Forests dominate the higher elevations and barren land at its highest points.
The island's easternmost point is approximately 2 km to the southeast and are surrounded with treacherous and near-unaccessible cliffs. The lighthouse overlooks the Atlantic and is rarely accessed. It offers panoramic views of the island of São Vicente to the south
The village is in the island's low class. Most of the houses are built with mud-brick and stone, the rest are built with either steel reinforced concrete or with stone and wood. All of its population are farmers and are based in agriculture where banana plantations, pineapple and other crops are common. Some farms are in the form of paddies and stone walls. However, a part of the needy materials comes from the island capital, the island capital and the diaspora. But for other needs, electricity, communications and appliances are partially available in the area as well as phone lines since the late-20th century. A part of the necessities also comes from the island capital.
