Located in a valley overlooking the parish of Seixal on the north coast of the island of Madeira, Chão da Ribeira is a green area ideal for enjoying revitalising contact with nature. This rustic setting is therefore suitable for enjoying a snack, having fun with the family, walking along trails or simply relaxing.
The landscape is dominated by the exuberance of the Laurissilva Forest. The great variety of flora present in this area offers the opportunity to get to know the wealth of indigenous and exotic vegetation that marks the landscape of the island. This bucolic view is complemented by the presence of farmland next to the river bed, with the typical terraces and tool sheds.
Chão da Ribeira, at Seixal, has a small and pleasant picnic park prepared with a barbecue, tables and benches. In fact, this is where the Panelo Feast is held in January, where this traditional stew, made of vegetables and sausages, is prepared and tasted.
Equally, this forest area serves as a starting point for some hiking trails and radical activities, such as canyoning. There are plenty of reasons, therefore, to come and make the most of this striking natural setting.
Marked by a rustic and bucolic landscape, Chão da Ribeira is an ideal place to go for a walk, enjoy a snack or stroll in contact with the indigenous Laurissilva Forest.
