Hiking Portais de Hércules
DESCRIPTION OF HIKING PORTAIS DE HÉRCULES
In the most special place of Serra dos Órgãos we find the Portals of Hercules, the most beautiful viewpoint of the region that presents us with its geological poetry expressed by several peaks such as São João, Santo Antonio, Cabeça de Peixe and the famous Dedo de Deus, Dedo de Nossa Senhora and Escalavrado.
