We completed this route from Ota to Evisa and back. Driving into Ota from Porto on the D124, there are scattered informal parking areas along the side of the street. We found parking behind the church (Piazza alla Chieza). Just below (south of) the D124,...More

We went to Spelunca with children below 10 yrs. old. We chose the path from Evisa (we parked a car on the main round close to entrance to tourist path and cemetery) which was our first mistake. Why? Because this path is not very interesting,...More

Lovely walk in the woods and gorge. We started from Evisa and walked down the zig zag path to the bridge (Pont du Zaglia) at the bottom (a 600m drop). The path is in good condition and nothing technical, but it is still a toughish...More

Drove through Spelunca gorges from Evisa to Porto at sunset. Great experience. The ride is more exciting for the car's passengers. The driver must pay attention as the road is very narrow and curved. Anytime a bunch of pigs or goats could pop out from...More

An incredible mix of river, ricks and mountains in this wonderful Island. We could have a shower in the river. Not that cold, not that impossible. A wonderful crystal and transparent water.
