Great hike but we couldn’t finish it with a kid of 6. Another kid of our group (12) tried but broke the arm.

The start of this gorge is casual.. you can easily walk down like 500m of the gorge with stairs and good walkways.. but once you have passed the first wooden bridge the more interesting part starts.. flipflops are not the best choice from now on....More

Be prepared! The gorge is challenging and quite big. What is displayed on the map is only a small route. The bigger one takes about 3 hours. You need to be very careful as some ropes and wooden steps are ripped and broken.

Definitely worth a visit, but be sure to have good shoes for walking! The little church in the rocks was delightful

Spent a few hours here. The hike to the St Anthony's church is quick and easy. The church is absolutely worth a look. For more religious people you can write a prayer on paper and slip it in the rocks, light a candle, buy an...More
