Past Events
A new light on history
Archaeology and the new water lands
Temporary Exhibition

The Environmental Impact Assessment, in its Cultural Heritage aspect, carried out from
the very beginning of the Alqueva project allowed to bring to daylight, over the years,
numerous vestiges of the past preserved underground. Some previously identified, many others revealed during the land mobilizations, these testimonies have contributed - sometimes in a very important way - to our knowledge of what has been, since times very far back, the settlement of lands that are today the vast perimeter of the Alqueva Multi Purpose Enterprise.
*From ancient prehistory to the modern era, in Alqueva and Luz, a glimpse of the societies that inhabited the lands that are now dominated by the water.
