    A nice and relative easy trail and less crowded than the other trails that start from the parking. Along the leveda and under trees, so not too warm. It is the only levada where you walk along a "slide" where the water i...

    Probably the most famous and traveled levada in Madeira, with one difference. Everyone usually starts in Rabaçal from Paul da Serra. Well, there is another way. It's from Calheta and the good thing is you are already on ...

    We park the car in Rabaçal. Then there is a levada on the right (of the road that goes to the Houses of Rabaçal). At the end of the Levada de Alecrim (about 3 km) you find beautiful lakes. There is kind of a hidden path ...

    I parcially followed the track, when I got to the lake I went down to the Risco and saw the 25 fonts. Had some rest at R...

    Very nice hike. We went a nice sunny Saturday, so many other hikers. The last bit was off trail (pic 6 and 7) we balanced on the edge of the levada. Don't attempt this, in rainy weather.
