The Leap of the wolf waterfals, Algarve, Portugal

By Neopolis
The Pulo do Lobo waterfall is formed by the waters of the Guadiana River, upstream from the city of Mértola (Alentejo, Portugal), has clear and crystalline waters that precipitate in a fall, getting lost in a sea of ​​foam through a rocky gorge from where they flow to give way to a lake of serene waters. The margins in this place are high and rocky, and so tight that they gave rise to a legend that says that a wolf in hunting leaped over them.
Pulo do Lobo is one of the most dramatic stretches of the Guadiana River, the place where the "river boils between extremely hard walls, the waters roar, splash, beat, flow and gnaw, one millimeter per century, for millennium, nothing in eternity" , as José Saramago wrote.
