The route

Levada do Brasileiro takes place completely within the bounds of the parish of Porto Moniz. As with most of the walks in Porto Moniz, The Laurissilva forest is the main setting.

To get to the levada, first walk through a trail found a few metres above. The trail is located in Pico da Pedreira (ER 105), at the top of a long straight section of road.

Follow the trail until you get to a small meadow with two paths. Take the path to the left. You may find cattle grazing in this area. Although accustomed to human presence, cows are very sensitive (and large) creatures especially when accompanied by calves. Keep to yourself and do not disturb the wildlife.
