  • The waterfall itself is of little slope, compared, for example, with the river Plowed, but the well where it makes entering the waters is relatively wide and deep. Beauty is very different in winter and summer. In winter take more water and highlights the waterfall. In summer, the well is attractive for leisure and baths. To access this area, it is necessary to appropriate footwear (boots in the winter and running shoes in the summer). It is also advisable to wear shoes inside the well of the waters, because the base is formed by pebbles, although rounded by erosion.

  • 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.

  • 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
