The waterfalls

One of the most appreciated and sought after natural treasures of Gerês are its numerous waterfalls of pure, crystalline water. Often located in hidden, hard to reach areas of the mountain range, their idyllic landscapes inspire and fascinate.


The Arado Waterfall

One of the largest and most famous waterfalls of Gerês is the Arado Waterfall, located at an altitude of 900 meters, near the village of Ermida and the Pedra Bela lookout point.


The Leonte Waterfall, also known as the Rio Homem Waterfall, is another of the main waterfalls and is very popular with bathers during the summer season, who cannot resist taking a dip in its pool of clear and serene waters.

The Arado Waterfall sits in the heart of the Peneda-Gerês National Park, considered one of the 7 wonders of Portugal in the category of Protected Areas.
