It is well signed on the road, and has a decent walking track to the waterfall. If you have enough time, plan to stay there longer to swim a bit. Nice place for picnics and to take the kids.

Very beautiful place, hidden in the forest. It is perfect for an afternoon picnic. Very quiet and peaceful. The two waterfalls are very beautiful but the water is very cold. Only the brave can dive there. A secret spot and for us a must see.

This is a must visit place in Portugal. If you have the chance to give it a stop while driving around, please do it. You won't be disappointed.

Compulsory visit on the way to or from PIÓDÃO - an historic village that deserves a visit. There is a small water mill just on the side of the way.
