Then, we take a mountain road which offers spectacular views of the valley and the central cordillera in the distance, which leads us to the Paul da Serra plateau, the only more or less flat region of Madeira, oscillating between 1300 and 1600 meters altitude. Many levadas leave from here, these irrigation canals created to transport water from the north of the island, which is wetter, towards the sunnier and therefore drier south side.
