This waterfall is on the River Arcos, which flows into the River Xallas after running through the valley separating the granite Monte Pindo massif from the montes da Ruña hills. This river used to flow into the River Xallas before emptying into the sea, but this changed when the Santa Uxia reservoir was built.
To get to this waterfall, head to the A Noveira treatment station in Mazaricos. Next to it there is an information board on the Ruta das Fervenzas trail in this area which, besides the A Noveira waterfall, is also home to the Gosolfre, Fírvado, Vioxo-Chacín, and Santa Locaia waterfalls.
Walk a short distance from here to get to this wonderful waterfall, which is 10 metres in height and is marked by the eroded stone blocks and natural pools on several levels. On hot days they are great for going for a dip.
