Portugal and its charms, the Minho is beautiful and everything that surrounds the Peneda-Gerês National Park is wonderful and magical. Pure nature, this and other waterfalls not to be missed.

This waterfall has two access trails. One (on the left) leads to the downstream, the other (one the right) is quite perilous but allows you to bathe on the upperside of the waterfall.

Lovely place to relax when it's too hot to do anything else. Could do with some better markings on where best to climb down.

While in Geres this had still a lot of water despite all the others having dried out. Beautiful to visit and take a dip since the watter is never too cold despite being always flowing. ATTENTION: Access is difficult and the rocks are very very slippery when wet. Bring footwear with a lot of grip and avoid waking barefoot over the slippery rocks. Not suitable for children or reduced mobility. Do not go down if it is raining since the slope and the slipery rocks will make it very dangerous when returning to the car.…

Geres is absolutely stunning and is a must to visit. Our last stop was the waterfalls and we went to the smaller one out of the two as the bigger one was too dry. It was very nice to swim in the natural lagoons BUT please be very careful. The rocks can be very slippery and whilst we were there a young girl sitting no more than 10ft away slipped and fell 10 m or so down to the lagoon hitting herself many times on the rocks on the way. Rescuers were called but the last we heard was she had a serious brain injury and is still in a coma. The next day we were on another trip and the guide told us that on the same day another 38 year old lady who was at the higher waterfall drowned. Very very sad and shook us up so PLEASE BE VERY CAREFUL !!!!!!!!…
