MARECHAL CARMONA DAM
A few kilometres outside Idanha-a-Velha lies this dam which completely transformed the landscape of the valley and separated the two Idanhas – the Nova (New) and the Velha (Old). The reservoir now contains a large artificial lake that is ideal for canoeing and other water sports. In summer, the river beaches are the perfect place to cool off.
