Curral das Freiras is a small parish surrounded by huge mountains located in the heart of the island. In the past it was just the corral where the cattle were left to graze, until in 1566 when pirate attack led a group of nuns to flee the city centre for safety and find refuge in, due to it being a place that was not accessible by sea and surrounded by the highest mountains of the island.
This canyoning stands out for the amazing views of the surrounding mountains along the route. Along the descent we have 8 rappels where the largest waterfall is 18 meters long, 2 jumps and a spectacular 6 meter toboggan or jump that we can repeat again.
