“Levada” is the name given to an irrigation canal or aqueduct flanked by a pedestrian path, specific to the island of Madeira.

The Levadas in Madeira appeared in the fifteenth century and had the function of transporting and distributing water from the rainier areas north of the Island to the southern areas. The rainwater and natural water sources were then channeled to the various plantations scattered around the Island.

Levadas can be found all over the island and many of them travel through our Laurissilva forest, which in 1999 was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. These channels have a length of more than 2000 km and are likely to be traveled on foot, being a very sought after way to visit places of the island that offer astonishing sceneries.
