The "Levadas" are a remarkable, ingenious irrigation system that was developed in the 16th century by the first settlers to distribute water from the high mountain springs to the slopes and valleys. Nowadays on the island there are more than 20 official hiking trails along more than 1'400 kilometres of Levadas.
