Levada dos Cedros

The Levada dos Cedros is one of many irrigation channels typical of wood, originating in the outcrops of Lombo do Cedro, at about 1000 m altitude, on the hillside East of Ribeira da Janela. Along the canal, you can see indigenous vegetation as tis, pastries, vinháticos and tall growing vines-da-serra. Is one of the oldest levadas on the island, built in the 17th century and, like their counterparts, serves to collect the water and lead them to agricultural and domestic locations. Is included in the classification of World Heritage Laurisilva and integrates the European network of sites of Community importance, the Natura 2000 network.
