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.

Wonderful landscape at, certainly, one of the most beautiful canyons (among a dozen of them) it that region. Easy to go if you have a car, or just hire a tour at the city. Try to get information about visibility at Casa do Turista in downtown before going. Be aware that fog can come and ruin the view in a... More

After a rather long drive from the Hotel Parador on a rough road, with a guide and Land Rover, we were glad to do some walking to the Mirador (50 minutes, one way). Stunning views, very satisfying tour.

This place is just amazing! At my first attempt to go there, it was completely foggy and I came back without any hope to see the canion. But two days later the weather was great! We never know if it will be foggy or not. Even if the weather is good in the town, things can be totally different in... More

Not so difficult walk but with dangerous wind and cliffs. Weather changes constantly so don´t expect to do it very fast, you might have to wait a little bit to get the great view of the crag and the beaches.

Although the dirt road there was terrible (especially since it had recently rained heavily) we still managed to make the trip in a small city car (although it was a close call at times, with rocks scraping away at the undercarriage). No matter how difficult the trip was, however, it was 100% worth it. The landscape in the park is... More
