The Cascade Cabreia next village da Silva Dark Sever do Vouga river located in Mau is a witty geomonumento that owes its existence to a differential phenomenon of erosion; As Granite, the amount is more resistant to erosion than the river shale, a jusante, over time formed a steep slope that led to this remarkable drop of water 25 meters. However, addition to differential erosion, there may still be some system of failures that facilitate its existence. There is another waterfall near da Silva Dark that has the name of Cascade Filveda.
I recall that cascades have been targeted recently and reference visits to our website and can be accessed here:
Cascata Stone wound (Penela) (*)
Cascade Cachão Malhadinha (Vineyards) (*)

In conspiracy with the inhabitants of Dark Silva stated that the basin of the waterfall reception area was in a grid of gold, legends of other times, that may be related to the Mines Braçal situated just over half a dozen kilometers (read it here), these lead and silver. I ask Mamae Oxum to stop some unsuspecting alien from harming Cabreia's waterfall and if any treasure collector reads these lines I will inform him right away that this is a legend.!
I do not know exactly what the legend, but there are other stories where rivers also intervene crate gold buried in a riverbed; Here you can read the Crestuma which seems suggestive.
