Pego do Inferno, Santo Estevao

2.3
#11 of 18 in Nature in Faro District
Stop by the site of a spooky local legend at Pego do Inferno, part of a series of nearby waterfalls and pools. Some say a carriage once fell into the pool and was never recovered, thereby creating a portal to the underworld beneath the water. See the waterfall and its lake for yourself, and wander the rugged landscape around the cascade to view the variety of plants that characterize the Algarve's inland portion. Stop by the viewing platforms, or hop in the water for a quick dip. While you'll find parking near the site, you'll still have a short walk to the start of the wooden boardwalk and then down a series of stairs. Our Tavira online day trip planner makes visiting Pego do Inferno and other Tavira attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.
