refreshingly inviting

A true gem out of the city, but definitely worth the trip. Dining indoors or outside, you'll experience true Portuguese cuisine!

Level it is not! there are some pretty steep climbs if you're old and not very fit, but nothing we couldn't handle. The views across the valley, the flora and fauna, the whole unspoilt beauty of the place was little short of breathtaking. It's a circular walk, about 5km and took us just over an hour. We could have taken... More

we were expecting more... you can drive all the way to the water if you want. but there is limited parking. we were not impressed by the small stream of water. the walk there is oke but on a dirt road. the surroundings are pretty. would not recommend to go out of your way to get there.

Well signposted and just off the main N396 road north of Querença, this is quite an easy walk for those like us – the well over 65s. A little tip though, instead of parking at the first stop, travel along the 30km per hour track until you reach the second parking area. This saves a lot of walking, which is... More

Nice drive getting there. Park your car if driving where recommended as the road getting to the fonts is not road worthy. It's a lovely walk surrounded by carob trees, oaks and so much more. The sound coming from the falls can be heard a ways off before finding it. The power of the water is shocking because before you... More

A truly delightful spot. It is somewhat confusing when coming off the highway but just note it is 1 km from turning at the old house to the parking lot where it is then a short walk to the falls.

When you go there you can go for a nice walk and drink from the fountain by the stream. It's a really nice walk to do and very peaceful. If your into nature go because it's very chilled and you might see a lot of wild life. Recommend.

It took us hours to complete it as we were in a group of walkers guided by a horticulturist. There is such a variety of flora that it took almost an hour to cover the first kilometre. There were so many wild orchids!
