CR25 – Curral Route
These tours are for hiking lovers. Here you can enjoy real Royal Paths or Royal Roads, which are ancient land roads built in the second half of the 19th century by representatives of the Crown.
These were used for transportation of people and goods when the sea conditions were too rough to allow navigation. These roads put a term to the isolation in which a large portion of the rural population was submitted to.
Built by hand, they were maintained by the entire population of the island, who were called upon to contribute days of work, in a tax created for this purpose and called a “road wheel”.
In the majestic central mountain massif, with magnificent views over Nun’s Valley and located in the centre of the island, this Royal Path takes us to old Madeira, on one of the trails built to break the isolation to which the most remote localities of Madeira Island were voted and used in the early twentieth century for the movement of people and goods.
