About Cascata da Fisgas do Ermelo
The Cascade of the Fisgas of Ermelo is a water fall located next to the Union of Parishes of Ermelo and Pardelhas, municipality of Mondim de Basto, district of Vila Real, in Portugal. This waterfall is one of the largest waterfalls in Portugal and one of the largest in Europe outside Scandinavia and the Alps, not precipitating in a single vertical jump: it does it in several jumps, as it progressively crosses a great quartzite barrier in a deep terraced. Its waters separate the granitic zones from the shale zones of the surrounding lands.
