We visited while visiting Parque Natural do Vale do Gaudiana and I'm glad we did. We drove from the northern road from Serpa, and it does take a bit of a drive down an unmade road (but easily driveable) but worth it as it is...More

It's a very beautiful place, if you came from Mina de São Domingos, prepare yourself for a long climb.

Lovely place to visit. Steep bumpy, very scenic road towards it, but worthwhile. Lovely few over the waterfall coming down through the rocks. Rocky surroundings.
