  • Effectively, the best time to visit this attraction is in winter and spring, when the river Plowed takes more water. Being the Beautiful Stone the most visited and are this cascade of a relatively short distance (maybe 2 km), it's worth making the detour, having the conscience that part of the route (about 800 m) will be on unpaved road, perfectly passable or to save the vehicle, made quietly walk away, parallel to the river Plowed, contemplating their margins. Close to the bridge of the Plow, climbed about 100 metres of a wide path, passing by a source of drinking water, until we reach the small largo where better you can see the waterfall approximately 20 or 30 meters of this). The attached photos will to get an idea of this site.

  • A very beautiful waterfall that is well worth the kilometres of curves that we must go through to get there. Keep visiting for a sunny day.

  • It's well signposted, although not of the prettiest is a must-see. Like all other attractions, it becomes much prettier with less visitors.

  • Great place to rest and swim and spend some time. There a few fountains so you shouldn't be worry about water. You have two options: 1- park your car new the asphalted road and walk the rest for about 1500 meters, or 2- Go by your car near the cascade and just walk 200 meters and I assure you that your car be be a mess as this a dirt road. On holidays, it's busy.
  • Currently the waterfall is on a very dry season as we are in mid September. So the water going down was very little. However locals said when there are rains the waterfall is full of water and more interesting to see. And this waterfall is very hard to go to seim to other ones in Geres park can be easily accessible. Ask before going.
  • Great place to chill, have a picnic and get some sun.
  • Beautiful place for a quick swim in the mountains of Gerês. GPS: 41.723806, -8.129307
