  • Viewpoint of Slingshots in Ermelo at the same time that the forest of pines and Cedars is becoming less dense, appears clipped, in the distance, mount flour, topped by the our Lady of grace. The cars lined up produce a spiral of reflexes that starts at the bottom and ends atop Mount. Mound flour, seen from the Slings of Ermelo in the day back to Portugal, or rather, the "half-back to Portugal", climbs to the top of the mythical Sra. da Graça, we descend the steep cliffs and rugged until Slings of Alvão Ermelo. The landscapes are breathtaking, you hear the roar of the water to stick the stone and the slingshots appear out of nowhere. A steep slope and, between shale, the Ôlo River chipped, that seen from up here and this time of year, seems more than a trickle. The slings of Ermelo is the largest waterfall of Portugal and one of the largest in Europe. Waterfalls of the river Ôlo, with a steep slope and length of about 200 panoramic view of the Slings of Ermelo. Unfortunately, the flow of the river Ôlo, at this time of year, is reduced. Says the people and with good reason: after the storm comes the calm. If the day before the rain made its, today, the Sun, way up high, toast the skin and ruin the pictures. On the way down the slope, the slopes become more frightful, that is, more steep. Slide, ante-foot walk, jumping from one stone to another in an attempt to not slip, even to the point. Viewpoint Here, a cluster of tourists, more foreigners, delight yourself with spectacular views. There is no infrastructure support, there is a pedestrian path signaled that circulate the slingshots. I imagine it would be if you're natural landscape had "born" anywhere else in Europe, would be almost lying abandoned as here? The best we have in this land of sea bordered Gore must be leveraged, monetized ... The landscape is alive and tourism is dynamic. It is possible to have a sustainable tourism, even here, in the middle of the cliffs. Drag monte legs Escarpment above and let the Ôlo run, undisturbed deep down, as it always did. The way of Ermelo, on top of the Alvão, after Ôlo sludges.
