your passage to nature
LEVADA DO RABAÇAL
Min: 900m- Max: 1290m
The most popular one taken from Madeira is probably this one. Its name comes from the number of fountains or small waterfalls that can be counted on arrival at the site.
With departure from the Rabaçal towards the 25 Fountains, unparalleled landscapes and sensations are being revealed, where you can enjoy a wide variety of endemic species of flora and fauna. You will know that you came to the site of the 25 Fountains when you find the waterfalls supplying a pond. Take a break and get some rest. The bravest ones dare to take a dip in these crystalline waters ... but chill!
After 25 Fountains, follow the route towards Risco, where you can admire another beautiful waterfall. Finish the route by visiting the house of the Rabaçal, so tiny compared to the mountains that surround it. It's time for a snack or just a break. The Rabaçal is a unique place, a must visit.
