Ngada is the name of regency with Bajawa as the capital.This is the smallest city on the Flores island I think, it's altitude is the highest and surrounded by green hilly topography. Near this city is the famous Bena, Traditional Stone Village of the Bajawa ethnic and Mataloko, a sub-district with very beautiful scenery and big seminary.
