I went here on the strength of the other reviews on this site. It's certainly worth the journey. We came up from the Portuguese side and the drive up was incredible. Steep winding roads have beautiful views of the valleys below. The location itself was...More

This is a great hiking spot. You can walk through the stones into the falls, or just go around and up, to see the falls. Either way, you have to do both! Perfect. :-)

Very tricky to access - definitely not suitable for people with limited mobility or simply clumsy. But perfect and a must do for young, adventurous and outdoor activities lovers.
