CAMINHO REAL DO PAUL DO MAR WALK
PRIVATE HALF DAY LEVADA WALK
ABOUT THIS WALK
A lovely, short walk that is almost entirely downhill from the village of Prazeres to the sea shore at Paúl do Mar. The descent is made along the cliff face, winding between terraced farm plots held in place by stone walls. he descent is made along the face of the cliff between Assomadouro at Prazeres and the dock at Paúl, winding between terraced farm plots, held in place by stone walls, formerly used for growing grain crops, but with decline of agriculture today, they are largely abandoned. This trail is a genuine historical heritage, winding along the steep slope in a zig-zag pattern, its stone pavement in small stair steps bearing witness to the isolation of past generations and to the ingenious and difficult trails built by the people to overcome this isolation.
