  • Going to the Portela do Homem that is up to about eight hundred meters of altitude on the border with Spain at the end of the Park, cross the bridge over the Rio Homem continue for another kilometre to park at Portela do Homem e take the opposite way in a pleasant OLE walk. Cascade falls among the rocks in a pond where you can also get wet. Beautiful surrounding scenery.

  • Visit the rain and it's still a big payoff in sight. I feel like going back in the spring/summer to enjoy the same. Simply spectacular.

  • It's near the road so you won't miss it. A lovely busy place to spend some time and enjoy swimming in cold water. It's too slippery, be careful! You have to park your car away from the bridge as it's not allowed to park there. You'll be surprised to see such a unique natural beauty near the road and in the middle of jungle.
  • A must see if you go to Gerês. The water is crystal clear and you can swim after the waterfalls! There are 3 different entrances, the one furthest away is the prettiest, it's worth the walk. If you can't find the way to go down just ask a local. Also you can park the car close to the border and walk there (takes around 10 min)
  • One of my favorite places in the North of Portugal next to the spanish border. By car, it has a cost of 1.50€ because it's a protected space.
  • Loved it here! What a beautiful place
  • One of the things you must do if you visit Gerês. A bit of a hike to get down there. Don't hesitate to ask a local on how to get down there
