After reading some mixed reviews about the lack of water from the waterfall, the amount of rubbish and the poor access, I can say that the water is falling again into the pool below. Yes there is a little rubbish but really not much. Access...More

This is one of the most beautiful, scenic hidden places I have ever been to and I have travelled a lot. Acces is not easy and definately not suitable for someone with limited mobility, but if you are willing to scramble a little then it...More

I read about the fire, but still decided to check out Pego do Inferno, because I was nearby. I was worth it - everything was green, water as running and few people swimming. The surroundings require some maintenance - cleaning the vegetation around the route,...More

It took us a while to find the right way to get there but it was worth the drive and walk. Everything was in bloom and it smelled like a magical place. We didn't go for a swim cause it was too cold, but it...More

Very nice place. There was a big fire which destroyed the bridge and the road. Was a big local attraction.

Perfect example of how human activity like diverting water can totally destroy a once beautiful place. Not only there is no water, but there's litter all over, stinking terribly. Can't get what for keeping all the beautiful pics here on TA if that's no longer...More

This was a beautiful place three years ago, but suddenly the river stopped running! This was always a possibility in the summer but not in March after a lot of rain. The water has been diverted somewhere upstream but the council have done nothing. In...More

Went today and the water doesnt flow. Its a bit like a refuse tip with a pool of water as its main feature. Very hard to find. Which actually made it quite fun to go. The other review about directions is perfect depending on what...More

Buenas cinta. No te voy a mentir: hay que andar bastante y el acceso no es el más adecuado para una persona mayor. Hace unos años, tenía un camino de maderas muy bien preparado y accesible. A día de hoy ese camino no existe... More

Hello, I was there 3 weeks ago. Was a fire a few years ago (2 or 3) and now there is no bridge, and there's a lot of trash everywhere. At this moment there is no cascade at all.
