16th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
This photo has been taken, in Madeira Island (Portugal) more precisely in Levada do Caldeirão Verde.
Madeira is an Island located in the Atlantic Ocean and was elected the Europe's Leading Island Destination for 5 years (2013, 2014, 2016, 2017 e 2018), by the “World Travel Awards”. Madeira was also elected "World's Leading Island Destination" in 2015, 2016 and 2017.
One of the most exciting experiences to have on Madeira Island is the “Levada Walks”. The levada is a small channel, which has been used to transport water from the North to the South coast. In Madeira you will find more than 3.000 km of these channels, which will guide you through the most beautiful and hidden landscapes of the island.
