Hiking Highlight (Segment)
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.

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!
