    Here it is really heavenly quiet and beautiful, especially because not the masses of hikers coming from the busloads come to the 25 sources. But the way is a small challenge and should only be done with sturdy hiking boots.

    For this mountain lake, I have denied the tour at all! Hidden it lies above the Risco waterfall. It is also not easy to reach, since the route from the Levada do Alecrim and / or from the forester's house Rabacal resembles a path and is partly dangerous in wet weather (the ground was broken off).
    Unfortunately it was too cold for swimming ... ;-)

    Very nice, cold mountain lake. When I visited, there was an outdoor pool atmosphere, although not quite as loud. Lots of young locals lounging in bathing suits on the round and flat stones. Few tourists.
    Going all the way forward you can see the lower vantage point of Risco Fall. Attention, no backup.

    To Lagoa it goes over steps relatively steep, but not dangerous.
