  • Enjoy a beautiful garden and the famous trout pond

  • A trail full of endemic species of regional flora and fauna
Full description
This is perhaps the most well known levada in Madeira. As you walk along this footpath you will marvel at the display of light and shade filtering through the laurel and heather trees. The trout swimming in the levada along side the path dashes for cover as they perceive your approach. As you near Lamaceiros, the view of Porto da Cruz and Eagle Rock far below are out of this world. This is a walk that cannot be missed.

Organizational problems

The visit to this agency was canceled 48 hours before. Despite my request to do another hike with them, they transferred me to another (Madeira explorers not to mention it) which offered Ribeiro Frio the same day. This agency offers, on the other hand, lower prices, because the services are different, but no reimbursement was offered to me. To finish the return to Funchal was anticipated an hour and a half before the scheduled time.
