Spectacular view, quick stop!
Aug 2019 • Couples
This place was on our way to Lisbon, so we made a quick stop! The view is spectacular! 5 min stop, be aware of the cars passing around, no toilet facilities!

nothing special
May 2018 • Family
just a dam ... and some river areas where you can take a shower. can be quiet (depending on the area) because in summer there are places with lots of people and lots of noise. nothing fascinating. nothing special.

Pretty Lake But Not Much Else
Oct 2018 • Friends
The Castle of Bode Dam was constructed in 1951. The concrete structure is 402 metres wide and 115 metres tall, making it one of the tallest structures in Portugal. The Dam restricts the flow of the Zêzere River, creating the Castle of Bode lake. As well as supplying water to the 3 million residents of the Lisbon region, it also provides hydro-electric power.

A road runs over the top of the dam and provides a view of the pretty lake. Bu, other than the view of the lake, there isn't much more to the place. Worth a 10-minute stop if passing through.

There is so much to do and walk down to the river and swim or cruise up down the river. Great to get away form the beach and enjoy the country side and the river life

Apr 2017 • Friends
Therer are 147 dames in Portugal. Over 40% oftheir energy come from hydrauelectric source. Once you visit Portugal it pays to visit at least one dame and this one is impressive. It creates an artificial lake of 33 square km.

A relaxing and peaceful place

We enjoyed the quietness of the place and the beauty of the scenery. The bar near the beach and the parking place provides snacks and drinks.

Nice area for the afternoon
Jul 2016
Went their mainly to kill some time but found it to be very nice and scenic with excellent swimming facilities within the lake. The beach was tiny and not very user-friendly however and parking limited. There is much more that could be done here to make it a great attraction but still was a pleasant way to get away from the summer heat and cool off

On our 'must show visitors' list

Stunning views from the roadway at the top of the dam, a careful drive down to the base is spectacular especially when the water is being released.
