RoutePico do Arieiro - Pico do Gato - tunnels - Pico das Torres - Pico Ruvio - Torres lower path - Pico do Arieiro
NotesRating 9/10, Landscapes #19. Probably the single most spectacular walk in Madeira and one of the best day walks in the world. The path to the east of the tunnel route near Pico das Torres was somewhat eroded in a few sections in 2003, but still fine in dry weather.
