Levada walk

Had the most amazing walk through the levadas (((irrigation))) I feel that I am rediscovering my Madeira all over again,

Levada is a channel of water that runs through the mountains, delivering water to the farms or small holdings.

The levadas were created for irrigation taking water from the wet north to the dry south of the island, where sugar cane, bananas, grapes and vegetables were grown.

That irrigation crosses through the island for more than 200km of distance. With great views that takes your breath away

The levadas are a magnificent complex system of over 200 water channels, some carved through rocks, creating footpaths that now so many of us enjoy walking through! With amazing breathtaking views.
