Pulo do Lobo


Pulo do Lobo is a waterfall 17km north of Mértola, in the Lower Alentejo region of Portugal. It is the highest waterfall in Southern Portugal. Its name means "wolf's leap" in English; it was said that only a brave man or a wild animal when chased could leap over the gorge that was created by the waterfall. This waterfall is located at an altitude of between 33 and 35 metres in a very narrow gorge in the River Guadiana.
