The Cascata de Pontes is a waterfall of one of the tributaries of the Laboreiro river, between a forest of oaks. It slides for approximately 13 meters, where it forms a blue-green lagoon.
Not being an ideal place for diving, its visit is mandatory for a good photo and close contact with nature. The Cascata also includes a small trail that leaves the village of Pontes, and is about 1.8 kilometers (round trip).
