General presentationGeneral information
. Click to enlarge the image.The village of Tightened of Água, which is staged on more than 100 m of unevenness, occupies a green valley where the poplars and the willows dispute space with the plantations of cane with sugar and the osieries. Vines and fig trees mix with the hydrangeas and the rhododendrons.

The winter at the village is devoted to the work of the wicker which dries in front of the doors. Notice the bell-tower of the church, capped of red and white.

The levada do Norte, one of most recent of Madeira (1952), comes from the collar of Encumeada. It irrigates the borough and feeds then Ribeira Brava. Ribeira Brava draws a narrow valley here, with harmonious contours. The vegetation abundant and is varied: willows and poplars of Italy prevail at the edge of water.
