LEVADA DAS 25 FONTES REHABILITATION WORKS GUARANTEE GREATER FUNCTIONALITY
The Institute for Forestry and Nature Conservation (IFCN) has recently concluded an important construction work in the area of Rabaçal, at the PR6 – Levada das 25 Fontes walk, thus contributing to reduce the human load which this trail daily undergoes.
The Levada das 25 Fontes is a 4.6 km long footpath, which requires extra caution particularly during the last 1.300 meters, after crossing the Ribeira Grande bridge where the trail gets narrower.
These maintenance works have contributed for the reconstruction of a 250 meters long walkway, thus ensuring that this trail is carried out in a one way direction, except for the first 400 meters, after crossing the bridge and at the final 120 meters, near the Levada das 25 Fontes lagoon. This intervention also involved placing and the reinforcing the protection railings which were placed along the footpath.
