The Kings walk is a beautiful walk, situated in the lush valleys of São Jorge will take you into the lushest places to be found on the island. The initial leg of the Kings walk, presents travelers with beautiful panoramic views of the São Jorge and Santana farmlands. After the midway point of the trail, the levada that winds from the interior of the island along the mountain slopes passes through a spectacular area of native forest which is well developed and rich in natural bio diversity.

The tunnels formed by the luxuriant vegetation and the great variety of species that you can find here are excellent living examples of the potential of nature, while the beautiful levada is evidence of the valuable cultural heritage of the island. You will also find a water mill (moínho), which is about three hundred years old. This mill is a good example of preservation, and powered by the water from the Levada do Rei (Kings Levada), it grinds wheat, maize, barley and rye grown on the terraces of São Jorge. Another must in Madeira walks.
