Discover Madeira from within: Stroll along a levada (aqueduct) and admire the many indigenous species that coexist in the laurel forest. Feel the forest with all your senses, smell the scented air, and identify different shades of green as you follow your local conservationist.

In the 19th century, the levadas were constructed to distribute water to the driest sides of the island. Nowadays they offer magnificent walking paths for tourists and locals alike. Step inside the green world of the Laurisilva of Madeira—a UNESCO World Heritage Site—cataloged as the largest surviving area of laurel forest and where you have an opportunity to see the indigenous laurel pigeon.

See rare plants, trees, and butterflies before arriving at the viewpoint for breathtaking sights of the surrounding mountains and valleys.
