QUEIMADAS - UM CAMINHO PARA TODOS


A temática "Um caminho para todos" oferece às pessoas com incapacidade motora e visual usufruírem do contacto directo com a Natureza.

Este trilho desenrola-se ao longo da esplanada da levada do Caldeirão Verde entre os Parques Florestais das Queimadas e do Pico das Pedras, no concelho de Santana.

Ao longo do percurso é possível acompanhar uma mancha florestal de transição entre a floresta natural da Madeira (floresta Laurissilva) e a floresta exótica (árvores introduzidas pelo homem nesta ilha).

O som da água em corrida permanente, o cheiro da terra molhada, a humidade característica da floresta e o calor do sol quando a atravessa, despertam todos os sentidos, conduzindo o caminhante ao contacto profundo com o espaço natural.

No Parque Florestal das Queimadas encontra-se a Casa de Abrigo das Queimadas, casa que mantém as características originais das Casas Típicas de Santana, apresentando um espectacular telhado em colmo.



The thematic "A way for all" offers people with motor incapacity the possibility to enjoy direct contact with nature and in particular with pedestrianism.

This trail takes place along the levada of Caldeirão Verde between Queimadas and Pico das Pedras Forest Parks, in the municipality of Santana.

Along the trail you can see a patch of forest changing from the natural forest of Madeira (Laurissilva Forest) to the exotic forest (trees introduced by man in this Island).
The sound of water running, the smell of wet earth, the humidity characteristic of the forest and the heat of the sun when crossing it, awakes all the senses, leading the walker to a deep contact with nature.

At the Queimadas Forest Park there is a shelter (Casa de Abrigo das Queimadas) which retains the original features of the typical houses of Santana, including a marvelous thatched roof.
