It's a shame it takes so long to get to up the twisting dangerously narrow road without many passing points. The falls are nice and I'm sure in a few months time there will be more water flow and the area will be warmer.

Very poorly marked Trail. Could not walk it fromNanteigas because tourist office closed and no one knew how to walk it and glad we did not because there was no water present at waterfall. Not worth the harrowing drive this time of year either.

We visited this place several times during our vacation in Portugal. One time we even went there early to avoid too many other tourists but it was a little cold there in the shade. When the sun hit the waterfall at about 11:30 am in...More

As we came upon this place during a hike through the local hills on a really hot day, it's a wonderful spot to cool down and take a reviving dip. Don't think that I'd bother driving all the way up the mountain though just to...More

The PR1 trail comprehends a 2.5km trail for average 1.5h. Steep rises in the beginning, not very well marked. But the view is awesome and is a nice trail around the water fall.

Nice waterfalls with luxurious vegetation and trees around. We are surrounded by nature and the highlight is an area were we access through a path-stairwell encastrated in the rock. It is dangerous.to walk with small kids and physically disabled persons.

This was our first hike in the park. First, we missed the turn off and ended up taking a long and dusty drive through the "high meadow" of the park which turned out to be a highlight. To do it on purpose take the first...More

I have been there couple of times. Last time in September - not a single drop of water - disappointing. Spare the place for the rainy season.

The Poço do Inferno can be reached by driving along the road to Torre from Manteigas for about 8 km until reaching the sharp turnoff to the left and following a narrow winding road through the forest for another 5 km. Here you reach the...More
