Canyon Waterfall
For an unforgettable adventure, visit Purcaraccia, a canyon with fun rock and water slides and emerald green pools. Your older children will love sliding down the rockslides with water flowing down into pools. Two waterfalls are on either side of the rockslides, one at a height of 40 m (130 ft) and the other at 8 m (26 ft). The walk to get to the creek takes about an hour via the narrow and often steep footpath, so this can be a difficult trudge for very young children, elderly folks, or people with physical disabilities. Due to the interesting landscape and aura of adventure, this is a popular place for tourists.

Amid granite rocks heated by the sun, many basins or natural pools carved into the rock provide swimming opportunities if you're brave--the water is a cool 14 C (57 F). Getting to the pools is an adventure itself; a path leads into the brush with grand views of the imposing Bavella Needles. There's a giant vertical rock wall on the right side above you where you'll cross the stream and climb up on the opposite side to reach the first pool. The steep path leads to a sequence of pools and slides creating a dramatic landscape. Put Purcaraccia on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Quenza vacation planner.

  • the place is beautiful unfortunately the trail is not reported, after an initial part is easy to get it wrong way and becomes dangerous.

  • He must go at Laronne pass and then take a small path. After thirty minutes of easy hike we get to the River, but not to the waterfalls. The path is very bad, it goes everywhere. To access the first waterfall a little climbing, but to go up another hour of escalation of sometimes very limited. So 1 h 30 touring not easy to bathe. At the top you can swim in a sublime setting. Equipment and sweating.

  • Quite difficult path. Go with good shoes and especially not sandals or flip flops! The site of the waterfalls is beautiful, but go early in July and August!
