Vereda da Ribeira da Janela follows the path of an old footpath that used to connect Curral Falso (Fanal) to Ribeira da Janela. The trail is moderately challenging, mostly going downhill. It starts from regional road ER 209, in the forest area overlooking the small town of Ribeira da Janela. In the past, this trail was used to gather wood, which was essential for the daily life of the local people. This path was also used by people to travel to villages on the south side, like Calheta or Ponta do Sol, carrying barrels of wine on their backs. When you arrive, you’ll see the agricultural area with traditional terraced fields supported by stone walls. They grow various products used in local food, such as potatoes, sweet potatoes, beans, and maize. The scenery of Vereda da Ribeira da Janela is lovely, with houses spread across the slope, from the stream’s start to about 400 meters above sea level.
