  • I was expecting something more about this dam, the photos maybe cheat a little bit on the prospects, though if you are passing through this area a park is a must:)

  • The main road to Tomar passes from this dam that created an artificial lake along and jagged with beautiful landscapes that can be enjoyed by passing or stopping a moment. The dam is a beautiful structure for those who appreciate the genre.
