What you'll do

This is undoubtedly one of the levadas you don’t want to miss. A magnificent trail of the Madeira’s Laurissilva forest where you can enjoy the unique vegetation of this UNESCO natural heritage.

The first part of the trail consists of a mixture of endemic and introduced vegetation after the discovery of the island. You can see various perspectives of the village at a distance.

In the second part, the trail penetrates into the interior of the island, that stills remains the same since before its discovery, more than five centuries ago. In this path you find the natural flora and fauna of Madeira, which include laurel, heather, chaffinch, among many, many others.

If you think you reach the end of the levada, keep walking, explore the forest and discover the exhilaration beauty it still has to offer.
