    The Levada da Central was passed through a narrow tunnel directly through the rock. You really need a flashlight or a headlamp. The trail is narrow in the tunnel and you sometimes have to move your head. As you pass through the tunnel, a breathtaking valley awaits.

    The tunnels through which the levadas pass can be quite muddy. Waterproof shoes are therefore recommended. You also need a good flashlight. And if you still want to walk under the waterfall to the next tunnel you should maybe have a rain jacket with you. Definitely a nice spot of nature.

    Bring flashlight. The tunnel is dark and you bump your head slightly

    Nice spot on the Levada da Janela, in summer the waterfall is almost non-existent!

    The tunnel is low, so wear a balaclava and definitely use a lamp!

    At the end of the tunnel, a steep cauldron waits, from whose wall the levada and a small balcony have been knocked out. A waterfall falls directly on the Levada. A small roof was built for the hikers and levadeiros so as not to have to overcome this place completely drenched. The water falls noisily on the small corrugated iron roof. A highlight of this hike!

    If you pass the Levada Madre, you will pass through numerous tunnels, including one with a length of almost 2 km!

    On the tour you get practice in passing through the tunnels. And there is even a curved one.

    Madeira is like Swiss cheese. Countless tunnels were built to build the levadas.

    There is a tunnel before and after the waterfall. One is straight so that you can see the light at the end of the tunnel, the second has a bend so that you don't see where the end is for a long time.
