Portugal - Barragem Castelo de Bode


Here's an amazing bird's eye view of a well known hydro-electric dam in Portugal, compliments of SJetMan. It's called the Castelo de Bode Dam, and it sits on the Zêzere River in the Santarém District, which is part of the Centro region of the country.  Completed in the early 1950's, the concrete arch-gravity dam stands 115 meters tall (about 375 ft.), making it one of the tallest structures in the country.  The Zêzere River is a tributary of the Tagus, Portugal's most important waterway.
