Levada do Caldeirão do Inferno | Laurisilva

WI_md086.jpg

Dense laurel forest (laurisilva) as it covers much of the humid N slopes of Madeira. These forests, considered to be in a largely natural state, are the largest remnants of a formerly more widespread type of ecosystem, and have been listed as the UNESCO World Heritage Site Laurisilva of Madeira since 1999.
