    It is, of course, a tourist attraction, but the hustle and bustle in this case is not very useful. The levada walk is accessible via a paved road down and takes a half an hour before the actual walk begins. The levada is again lower and can be reached with a walk on stairs down. The levada in itself is good to walk and runs relatively flat, is very narrow and it is difficult to pass each other by the crowds. This is a point, because it is all because of this.

    We had a beautiful path oer get to Risco waterfall, accompanied by a guide who has made known to all plants that we met, letting us see the difference of the same plants as they changed the share, the bay leaf from the tree Bush turned into Lauri Silva, a Unesco World Heritage site.

    Attention, between the place where begins the hike and the place where we leave the car, there is more than 2 km case walk. I highly recommend taking the shuttle for the month. The elevation is very important. There are a lot of people, but the beauty is there. I preferred the arrival of levada easiest altogether, if you want to do everything on foot, there are more than 10 km. Unfortunately, too many people. Try to make levada in good time.
