An awesome spot to stop for a bit. Very beautiful but you need to be careful because it's difficult to reach. Amazing pictures and time that you can spend over there.

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. :-)
