Gurusina - Ngada, Flores

Gurusina is  traditional Ngada village, in the heart of Flores. It is a lot more off the beaten track than for instance Bena, and has a real authentic feel to it.
Gurusina’s traditional houses are situated around a wide courtyard, displaying several sets of ture lenggi, the ancestral stone altars of the Ngada. The village was founded around 1934 by people coming from the highlands.
 
Unfortunately the village was almost entirely destroyed by fire, in 2018.
