Crowds of tourists are probably not what a nature lover would look for. However, the high number of visitors to this levada is balanced by amazing nature, views of the surrounding mountain walls and lush vegetation. Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?…

Ferns

We start at Casa das Queimadas, a beautiful thatched country house with a small car park. The sooner you come here in the morning, the more likely you are to have comfortable parking. And we immediately dive into the green beauty. The ferns here are really big, sometimes in tree form.

Vegetation

Initially, the path around the levada is wide, but gradually it narrows, sometimes to about 30 cm. There is literally a forest around.

Tunnels

Levels often include tunnels. This is also our case. A flashlight or headlamp is a must. In tunnels, taller people sometimes have more complicated, so watch your head!

Green levada

We walk through a green and wet paradise, it is a feast for the eyes and chips in the cameras (or mobile phones).
