    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.

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

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

    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.

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

    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!

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

    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.

    In any case, take your headlamp and rain cape with you. It gets wet under the waterfalls and pitch black in the tunnels. It is definitely an experience!

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

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