Great day out for nature lovers. 8km walk - hike, on man made trails following the river. Lots of parts are under shade, but a hat is recommended on hotter summer days.

So awfull to see what the fires have done to the area. Only a third of the stairs are still able to be climbed. Would have loved to see the forrest with all threes instead of a terrible dark hillside. Destroyed 😢😡🍀

Have a ride to the top of the radar, go see the "parideiras" and "boroas"stones and the huge Frecha da Mizarela. But you have more than 40 geopoints to see... And especially if you go in the spring the countriside is amazing, yellow and purple.
