After a short visit to Madeira’s trout farm and knitting stalls, you enter the Laurisilva Forest of Madeira which has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1999, covering 149.5 square kilometers of Madeira.

During the walk you see all the laurisilva vegetation with beautiful views into the valley located on the north side of Madeira (Porto da Cruz).
