The place was absolutely gorgeous BUT if you are afraid of hights, this is not a place for you to go. The levada leading to 25 Fontes is pretty narrow in some parts and hill is scarp

Brilliant when you get there but the walk is not for the faint-hearted.There are a LOT of steps to and from the levada and the path along the levada is quite narrow a slippy-but the water fall is sensational.

very good walk that takes you around 3 to 4 hours walk on a good path.

It was a very pleasant walk, slightly vertiginous in parts - not for the faint hearted, but the path was fenced in these areas. The area arounf teh waterfall was very attactive and worthwhile seeing.

The guide book we had said you could drive to the bottom and take a short walk. However the road had been gated and locked so you had to pay 3 euro per way or 5 return to get down. Its a long walk down and we paid to get back up, however if I had known how far it was I would have paid for a return.

The falls are interesting but there was little water coming over when we went. Scenery was really good, as is most of the area around here.
Didnt visit the springs as was worn out from walking all the way down!
