A distant waterfall

Portugal is a mild country. The climate, the people and even the landscape are mild. There are no extreme natural features like deep canyons, huge mountains or immense deserts.

One of the few places where the landscape assumes a somehow dramatic appearance is at Alvão Natural Park, where river Ôlo falls down several hundred meters in a succession of waterfalls. From the most popular viewpoint one can only see a very small portion of the downfall, but it is still an impressive sight (at least to us, used to mild things).
