This is NOT Niagra falls. It is not even a real waterfall but instead a small rapids..... However, if you drive from Mertola on the road to Beja (N122) then the drive to Pulo do Lobo is wonderful. The road takes you through the National...More

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

I wasn't impressed by the waterfall. But the hike was really nice although the path wasn't always clear. Saw turtles, a water snake and lots of birds by the river.
