Queimadas, A Path For All
A Path that Starts at Pico Das Pedras and Ends at Queimadas Forest Park.
One Of The Only Paths Prepared For People With Reduced Mobility And Blind People.
This path can be done with an electric chair, always be careful, because although it is said to be prepared, some of the crossing areas have lots of leaves, earth, mud and tree roots, which along the way can become uncomfortable and the chair can get stuck.
Cannot be used with any type of electric chair, mobility scooter or manual chair.
(It is recommended to use a device with some power to avoid getting stuck).
Can be done with the aid of front-wheel drive equipment.
It Is Possible To Do This Trip With A Blind Person Clinging To The Balcony, With The Support Of A Person.
The ground is quite uneven. To Do This Trip, We Did About 1h30 In A Wheelchair For Each Side.
On the Way, The Silence Of Nature, Is Very Present, We Appreciate The Birds That We Surround, We Smell, Breathe The Air Clean Trees.
A Peaceful Place…
When It’s Morning, We Feel In The Air, Still The Morning Dew.
At the end of this path we find the Parque das Queimadas.
In this Park There Are Chairs And Tables, Where We Can Make A Small Picnic.
It has a small cafe, where you can find cakes and other delicacies from Madeira.
There is a house on this site, the Casa dos Queimados, which is connected to the construction of the Levada do Caldeirão Verde, which began in 1877 and was completed around 1904. It is, therefore, related to the Cyclopian Task that went through the Insular Centuries, Since About 1425, To Tame Nature And Enjoy Its Riches, Like The Abundant Water That Must Be Channeled And Used In Agriculture. Apart from the extensive, and often dangerous, work of channelling the water and building the levadas, especially since the 19th century, many out-of-town walkers were ecstatic at the sheer beauty of the gullies and mountains of the North Coast, making the Quinta Acciaolly and Figueira Hotels especially, first on the North Coast and nerve-racking spots, home to the difficult and awesome views of the misty north. These Landscapes Were Then Often Drawn And Recorded Along The Xix Century, Especially By The English, Creating Travel Albums.
It Has An Adapted Toilet.
In the Park Itself, There Is A Space Where There Are Ducklings, We Can See And Feed, Many Birds Usually Come, Especially To Steal The Crumbs We Leave Behind.
