Experience

Levada do Rei (PR18)

Explore the beauty of Madeira on the Levada do Rei trail. Start your journey at the Water Treatment Plant of Quebradas in São Jorge. Along the way, you’ll pass through a unique forest and see the traditional farms of São Jorge and Santana. Enjoy the amazing tunnels created by the diverse plants. The plentiful water in this area creates the stunning green landscape of Levada do Rei. But the most special moment is when you arrive at Ribeiro Bonito, an isolated natural sanctuary covered by the dense forest. Don’t miss the São Jorge water mill, the last one still working, powered by Levada do Rei’s waters. This historic mill, operating for three centuries, grinds the grains grown in the region’s terraced fields, carefully managed by a local miller.
