This giant dam has created the greatest artificial lake in Europe, causing Guadiana river to overflow from the surrounding area of Mourão to Portel, Terena and Juromenha, not to mention Moura. Alqueva dam was basically built to ensure the existence of a strategic water reservoir, as well as to enable agricultural watering process. Europe’s biggest artificial lake came to life on February 8th 2002, when the dam doors were closed. The rise of water level led to the extinction of a unique habitat in Guadiana riverbanks made of submersion mills, weis and even open-air Paleolithic cave paintings.
