Lamakera was before a very important entrepĂ´t for spices from the Moluccans and also one of the few whale catching villages in Indonesia.Now 1 of the 2 remaining.With Lamalera on Lomblem/Lembata.Although by Lamamakera-people not so much whales cought the last years.
The capital of the principality is built against the hill and looks a bit like Gibraltar too.
Very interesting place to be and very friendly people too.True Indonesia!He is depicted here with his wife Ratu Siti Hajjar Tere.
