  • It was our favorite spot we visited in Portugal. Beautiful lake and nice easy way around. Unfortunately the water level was too high and we couldn't continue and see the building under the water. But still it was great place to be as not many tourists were there. We saw people diving into the lake. Please you should know that swimming is not allowed there.
  • The dam, the river and the landscape is absolutely beautiful. You can have a nice picnic there. Use a car if possible because public transport is existent but very limited. A useful warning: beware of wild dogs! The place is quite deserted, Campo do Geres is almost empty in the month of May, there are not any open places (cafés, etc.) and dogs in packs of 10 or more can be quite dangerous if you walk there. We were lucky. We went there with a taxi from Terras de Bouro (EUR 20.- including a generous tip) and took the LAST bus (15:40) to return there.
