The Endless Stairs
When hiking along the levadas you usually hike without much elevation or falling path since you keep up with the water running softly.
In this spot on the hike to the 25 Springs Cauldron you descende quite deeply, cross a canyon on a bridge and then climb back up. What the water does? The open levada is funneled into a pipe and goes by the path to then surface back on the other side in an open pipe. That all works with natural pressure.
