We went to the waterfall while hiking on the PR 14 trail which starts at Ermida about 6km from Villa do Geres. The waterfall is very pretty with some good swimming spots and cars can not access it (the closest car park is about 1km...More

The view was breathtaking and the short hike up was more than enjoyable. This is an example of nature's beauty.

Just looking at it from the viewpoint is not worth the trip (although the flowers gave more perfume than I ever experienced!) but the walk down from above them (not easy) is superb
