This is one of the most popular walks on the island, a true masterpiece of nature. Descending from the famous plateau, Paúl da Serra, we arrive at the house of the Rabaçal shelter and from here we head towards the waterfall known as Risco. Then we descended to the levada of the 25 Fountains and walk until we come to a kind of pond or lagoon. This lagoon is located at the bottom of a rockface from where the 25 fountains cascade - thus they have given their name to this levada. On the way back the route takes us through a tunnel which also directs water to the south of the island.
It is maybe one of the most known levadas. Walking on this path, enjoy the contrast between light and shade appearing through the laurels and heathers that will keep you company on the way.
