Penha de Águia with rock fall

WI_md091.jpg

View from a levada nearby Cortado in SE direction to the village of Faial and the cliff of Penha de Águia, one of the major landmarks of Madeira. The debris accumulation at the base of the cliff goes back to a rock fall event in 1992, involving almost two million cubic metres of material.
