Amazing sight seeing

The weather conditions must be good and clean air for the sight seeing. 1,5km walk to reach the top of the mountain is worth the effort.

To connect with nature and feel part of the environment is almost impossible in this amazing place. The access trails to the canyon in very good, you can contemplate the amazingness of this wonderful place. This place is not just a good spot for photographs but also a place to relax and thing about life.

want to have some adventure? No matter if you come to the top or do a hike in the bottom, it is just the most beautiful place I've ever seen. It is enormous and if you get lucky you will be able to see the Atlantic ocean from the top if the fog does not get in the way. Breath... More

With good access trails you can contemplate the wonderful landscapes. At the top you can take photos from the Torres beach and mountains far from the canyon.

I love this Canyon if you are lucky you could see the sea and Torres. A place to take lots of pictures. Has three trails make all of them you will enjoy for sure. You could go any time you want.

It's plain nature, untouched, breathtaking. Easy access to astonishing views, nothing you see in pics will show you what it really is. There's no structure at all and I found this fact nice cause it isn't artificial. We didn't climb all the way to the very top cause we'd seen enough, no need. You don't pay anything, you just take...

This is an absolute must visit! Spectacular views, incredible scenery and tranquility! On the day we visited there was quite a lot of fog and light rain, but even so the experience was well worth it!!

1 place you should go! This is the best view ever! However make sure that will not to Rain, because could be dangerous. Also, I do not recommend it for family with Kids. When i visited was 28 degres Celsius, and almost 11h and the wind was so strong that we avoid get closer to bordes.
