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!!

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
