Although the Castelo da Lousa is submerged and the remains resulting from the excavations prior to its submersion continue to be the subject of constant studies. This exhibition is the latest historical, archaeological and research review of this archaeological site.

Those who visit Alentejo today are faced with profound changes, as a result of the dynamics introduced by the Alqueva Project.
EDIA, as an entity whose objective is to conceive, carry out, build, explore and promote the Alqueva Multiple Finals Project, has been protecting that all stages are implemented in a sustainable manner and with respect for environmental and heritage concerns.
In terms of Cultural Heritage, an area where it made a financial investment in about 2,000 archaeological sites, it diverted to daylight numerous archaeological remains preserved underground and, a large part of them, unknown to the scientific community. Traces identified within the scope of the Environmental Impact Assessment processes, but mainly during land mobilization works, in the context of construction work.
In order to promote rapid action in the face of these archaeological evidence, EDIA has been ensuring the presence on the ground of specialized technicians, who carry out the implementation of the necessary minimization measures in each case (archaeological excavations and various records), of which highlight the technical publications with reports of the activities carried out.

Those who visit the Alentejo today are faced with profound changes that they would not expect to be so significant. The element that leverages this transformation process is Alqueva. This project clearly shows a before and after in several areas, with emphasis on the agricultural component.
The territory of Alqueva is now in constant transformation and modernization.
Alqueva water has made available to this territory a range of new opportunities in which the binomial tradition versus modernity is still present, but the investment and innovation intended for the Alentejo are transforming the space making it a land of modernity.
And it is about these transformations that are happening in the Alqueva space that we are reminded of the new exhibition of Museu da Luz.
