On the Caminho Real ('Royal Path') trail below the walls of the Pico Grande massif in the mountains of Madeira.

"This trail begins at the Boca da Corrida belvedere and runs along elevations between 1340 and 940 metres, crossing part of the Central Mountainous Massif along the foot of the highest peaks of the island of Madeira. It is an old ‶Royal Path” that was paved and served as one of the main routes for the movement of persons on the island. It was used by landed gentry on horseback whose wives reclined in hammocks carried by men. There are references to a grocery store that existed somewhere along this path that was likely a trading post in an area where travellers passed by as they crossed the island." (From the official trail information).

On the trail from the viewpoint of Eira do Serrado down to Curral das Freiras in Madeira.

The village of Curral das Freiras ('Nuns' Corral') that can be seen below was founded in the 16th century by the nuns of the Convent of Santa Clara who fled Funchal seeking refuge from French pirates looting the island. Actually this trail had been the only way to reach the valley until 1959 when a precipitous road was built across the vertical rock face above. Only in 2004 a new tunnel, over 2 kilometres long, was opened, making the road much safer.

Walking the Levada do Curral, a dilapidated trail through the valley of the Ribeira do Curral das Freiras in Madeira.

"This is one of the more frightening levadas on Madeira, slicing southwards from Curral das Freiras through an impressively steep-sided gorge. The levada clings to sheer cliffs and there is a notoriously awkward stretch at Fajã where it has been hacked from a cliff that continually weeps with water, so it is treacherously slippery." (Paddy Dillon: Walking in Madeira: 60 routes on Madeira and Porto Santo).
