There is a large parking lot at the top of the hill. A small road leads from the parking lot with a green gate. Every 20 minutes a shuttle bus takes you down to the restaurant and trail head. Just wait by the gate and...More

As all Levadas we walked this was also a great trail. It's fairly short (2,5km to the 25 Fuentes) but as it's really narrow most of the way, it takes much longer than you would guessed. Impossible to get lost :) We walked in the...More

This walk is suitable for most people, though access for disabled would be difficult. The main access seems to be from the main road above Rabacal, here there is good parking and - if you feel short of energy - a minibus to take you...More

The walk is very strenuous, hilly, single file a lot of the way, lots of steps. Coming back up you can get a mini bus definitely wouldn't walk back.
