Luba is a traditional Ngada village located at 870m of altitude in the mountains along the southern coast of Flores, about 20km inland and a few km south of Bajawa and not far from the Bena village. It consists of two rows of houses on a terraced slope, built with traditional materials such as bamboo and thatched roofs and a central square with animistic shrines (Ngadhu and Bhaga) and megalithic stone structures used for religious purposes. Right outside Luba there is a school for the children.
