Frecha da Mizarela - PHOTOGRAPHER COMMENT
Frecha da Mizarela is one of the highest waterfalls of Europe, with a 75m drop. It is part of Caima river and its formation is due to an intersection between greywackes (harder and more resistant) and schists (softer), which provided different water erosions, thus carving this big drop.
