    The walking section leads approx. 1.75km along the water channel (Levada) of a tributary of the Ribeira da Praia, which starts at the Lagoa da Fogo. Very nice hiking section. In the Levada swim trout that you can discover.
    At the end of the canal, a pressure line 290m deep into the valley to supply the hydroelectric power plant Central Nova, which is still in operation today and has a capacity of 440kW, with about 300l / sec with water.
    The Kaftwerk Central Nova is the fourth of the historical hiking trail PR 39 and was put into operation in 1927.

    @ steffend- the water is not intended for cattle drinkers but feeds a hydroelectric power plant !!!

    It is best to walk along the way back from Lagoa do Fogo hir and up the other path from the village, then follow the watercourse downhill
