Information

This dam was built on the Douro River, in the area where the river is the natural border between Portugal and Spain. The main purpose of this dam is to produce electric energy, but thanks to the dam’s built along the river, the floods who before were regular, aren’t happening anymore. Also thanks to the dam’s, it’s possible nowadays to sail with boats.
