The 25 Fontes (25 fountains) levada is one of the most popular in Madeira Island. Its name lives up to the number of fountains or little waterfalls that’s possible to count once you arrive there. Stating in Rabaçal and going to the 25 Fontes, the path reveals many landscapes and wonderful sensations. Along the way it’s possible to admire a wide variety of endemic species of the flora and fauna of the region. Enjoy the contact with nature and absorb everything that it has to offer! After arriving to the 25 Fontes delight yourself with the landscapes and the environment, like the waterfalls gushing toward a magnificent lagoon. Take a break and open your mind. There are even people that dive into the gelid waters. After appreciating the 25 Fontes, keep going toward Risco, where you can admire a splendid cascade. Finish the walk with a visit to the Rabaçal’s house, which seems tiny given the grandeur of the surrounding mountains. Take the opportunity to regain strength with a snack or simply to relax. Rabaçal is a unique and magic place, abundant with cascades, fountains, lagoon and much more! Come and discover!
