Broca / Barriosa, Alvôco, Portugal
It’s in the small village of Barriosa (in the Natural Park of Serra da Estrela, Portugal) that this cascade "Poço da Broca" is located. It is one of five cascades (all known by the same name), all man made and that can be found along the banks of the Alvôco and Loriga rivers. In order to reclaim the fertile lands of the river the population shifted and shortened the course of the river and in the process these small waterfalls were formed.
