slogan

"Levada" derives from the word "Carry", then we can say that a levada is a mini canal that leads water from the springs to another point farther.

The purpose of these mini-channels is to transport water from the mountains of the North Island to the South using it for irrigation of agricultural land explored by man since the century. XVI. Only with a small slope these channels, tearing up the mountains, can reach several kilometers (2500) extension, and is said to have been built long before there roads and cars.

Nowadays these channels are "explored" by the tourists who visit us, enjoying a unique landscape between colorful terraces and flora and fauna endemic to Madeira, the Laurissilva.
The practice of these tours help the traveler to relax and enjoy the best of nature.

Do not miss a chance to stroll through the magnificent taken Madeira.
