The Levada dos Tornos is approximately 5 kilometres
north of Casa Parsons, crossing the road from Gaula towards Camacha and Santo Antonio da Serra.
Only recently completed in 1966, the Levada dos Tornos is 106 km long and some 600 mtrs high, making it Madeira's most important Levada.
This picturesque Levada starts in the north of the island, initially flowing southwards
through a tunnel towards Funchal. Emerging above the city it then meanders slowly eastwards towards Camacha and Santa Cruz, passing through beautiful countryside and along spectacular
hill sides, always with stunning sea and coastal views.
Higher above the Tornos flows the Levada da Serra, some 27km long and 800 mtrs high. It meanders through Eucalyptus and Oak trees with hydrangea, gorse, lilies and rhodendrons as your seasonal companions.
