Another hike was at the Poios Levadas. This particular hike took us along some new levadas which transported the water to the terraces (poios). Later during this walk we heared water streaming like it was a river. Yes, indeed, you guessed it right...we found an old levada. It was quite a contrast. Besides the fact that we appreciated Madeira's myriad aqueducts for their beauty and ingenuity of design, we also loved all those magnificent views we had at the mountain rims.
Walking the levadas is just great, some of them do provide easy and relaxing walks through beautiful countrysides. But do keep in mind that others are narrow and crumbling ledges where a slip could result in a serious injury (or evend eath). Our tip is to prepare yourself and collect updated information about the route you are planning to follow. And make sure about the total time you will be spending on that route, so that you will finish the hike before dark.
