Stunning views of the mountains, beautiful waterfalls and lots of different flowers and wildlife. There are two routes you can take 4.5k and 9k. We were aiming to do the 4.5k but unfortunately got a little lost. Sign posting isn't the greatest. We ended up...More

Nice easy walk along the river with very interesting fauna and flora, typical from this Algarvian region.

Worth going to if you want a relatively easy walk. Not too challenging for most people. I was 5 months pregnant and managed it comfortably.

We went there for a family walk and thoroughly enjoyed it. We did a short circular walk up and down the river. It was quite well shaded and there were some interesting fruit trees and bamboo.

On the road to Querencia this hike through the hills is now well marked from the highway. New signposts along the way explain in English the flora and the fauna. Although the road is narrow you can drive past the first parking lot to a...More
