Rocha dos Bordões

Rocha dos Bordões is a curious geological phenomenon that presents impressive vertical striations on the basalt wall. Through the rock, several watercourses pass that end in a waterfall. Very close by, we find the so-called Águas Quentes, small boilers boiling with sulfurous water.
