Levadas are artificial water courses on the Portuguese island of Madeira, with which water from the more precipitous areas in the north and in the center of the island is directed to the agricultural production areas in the south. As part of this long distances must be overcome, most of the levadas runs with only a very small slope. But these waterways overcome valleys and mountains, cross tunnels, cross natural watercourses and also lead over bridges.
