The Great Lake of Alqueva & Castles #DJI #Phantom 4


The landscape of the area around Alqueva in the Alentejo region of southeastern Portugal has been transformed by a massive hydro-engineering project called Alqueva Dam.  The dam provides electricity for the region and also helps to preserve water supplies for agriculture.  The reservoir created by the dam is essentially a giant artificial lake.  Contributor Flybyzion gives us a drone's eye view of the area, where centuries-old castles now sit on or near this massive body of water.
