Besides its natural beauties, Madeira has another no less surprising beauty to offer you: the magnificent engineering work of its irrigation system - the water channels known as levadas.
These watercourses are the living proof of the titanic effort made by our ancestors to spread amongst the hills and valleys the abundant water that gushed from the springs high up in the mountains.
Besides the lovely walks that they provide, the levadas are sometimes the only means of access to certain places, which are so isolated that they just have to be worth a visit.
Stray a little from the main roads and discover the soul of the island by walking along some of these channels. Your efforts will be rewarded with the discovery of beautiful panoramic views and landscapes that will literally take your breath away.
Immerse yourself amidst these levadas and footpaths and enjoy the best panoramic views provided by the exuberant nature of Madeira. A real tonic for your everyday life!
