Queimadas – A way for all
The thematic "A way for all" offers people with physical disabilities the possibility to enjoy direct contact with nature and in particular with pedestrianism.
This Trail takes place along the footpath of the levada of Caldeirão Verde between the Queimadas and Pico das Pedras Forestry Parks, in the municipality of Santana.
Along the trail you can see a patch of forest transition between the natural forest of Madeira (Laurissilva Forest) and the exotic forest ( trees introduced by the man in this Island).
The sound of water running, the smell of wet earth, humidity characteristic of the forest and the heat of the sun when the crosses, awaken all the senses, leading the walker to contact with the natural deep.
At the Queimadas Forestry Park there is a shelter ( Casa de Abrigo das Queimadas) which retains the original features of the typical houses of Santana, including a marvelous thatched roof.
