Overview

Beginning in the Queimadas Forestry Park, this walk is ‘out-and-back’, and crosses some spectacularly steep slopes, but is one of the finest ways of penetrating the deep valley of the São Jorge brook on foot; you’ll need a torch on this walk, which passes through a tunnel.

The levada of Caldeirão Verde is an impressive work of art built in the 18th century that begins in the main stream bed of the Caldeirão Verde brook. Passing through steep cliffs and mountains, it carries the water that runs off the highest mountains of Madeira, to be used to irrigate the farm lands of the parish of Faial.

After you pass through the 4 tunnels on the route, Caldeirão Verde appears on the left of the levada.

The Caldeirão Verde lake is formed by water that falls from the bed of the Caldeirão Verde stream bed from a height of approximately 100m.

Balade bien tracée et peu de dénivelé .
Malheureusement sous la pluie pour nous ...
Belle découverte de la faune, des hortensias bleues en fleurs et des maisons typiques .
Passage par la cantina da Serra a Santana ! Une petite perle !!
