Levada do Castelejo | Madeira


Madeira Levada do Castelejo

Näin talven alussa on kiva muistella viime keväistä Madeiran reissua. Jatkanpa siis viimein matkakuvapostauksia. Lopussa linkit muihin Madeira-postauksiin. 

Matkan neljäntenä päivänä (en tee postauksia kronologisessa järjestyksessä) menimme järjestetylle puolen päivän levadakävelylle saaren pohjoispuolelle. Levadan nimi oli siis Levada do Castelejo. Ihana aurinkoinen päivä ja kauniit maisemat vuoren rinteeltä. Viljelyksiä, vuohia... Lopuksi saavuimme pieneen kylään, jossa oli värikkäitä taloja ja upeita puutarhoja. Sanalla levada siis viitataan Madeiran kastelukanavajärjestelmään. Levadareitit seuraavat kastelukanavia ja niitä on lukuisia eri puolilla saarta. Osa kanavista on vielä käytössä ja osa ei. Suosittelen ehdottomasti tätä levadareittiä Madeiraan matkaaville.

It's time to reminisce my Madeira trip of March again now that the winter's starting. I'm making this post as the first snow is on the ground. Find the links to the other Madeira posts below the photos. 

On the fourth day of the trip (these posts are not made in chronological order) we took an organized half-day levada walk to the north side of the island. The route was called Levada do Castelejo. It was a sunny day and the views from the mountain side were amazing. Farms, goats, flowers... At the end of the walk we arrived at a little village with colorful houses and pretty gardens. The word levada refers to the irrigation channels throughout the island. And there are a lot walking routes beside them. I would definitely recommend this particular route. The photos are from the beginning of March which is not the best flowering time and it had been a dry winter too, but the views were still very beautiful.
