Arriving by the A23 and going out to IP2 towards Portalegre (Nisa, Amieira do Tejo, Arez, Tolosa, Gáfete, Alpalhão, etc.), right on the first cut to the right we will give Gardete, a simple place of far fewer people than houses, still in time and giving the impression that there neither soul that there will be that can meet us or give any information. At the entrance we are greeted by huge fig trees that seem to be on their own, not realizing whether they come to give figs or if they are as old as the overwhelming majority of the few inhabitants that I imagine there are almost invisible, taking care of domestic and agricultural activities. The aridity of the place contrasts with the dam 200 meters further down, surprising, which makes us stop over its wall (also bridge) from which you can see two arms of the two rivers that feed it: Ocresa and Cobrão The water plan rises and low depending on the energy production that requires it, being certain that in winter it is up here and in summer reaches lower 40 or 50 meters, leaving the boats hanging like frames or bibelots on their slopes, but without ever drying or suggesting that this might happen. A magnificent dam and reservoir, full of biodiversity and capable of sport fishing, including embarked and preferably powered by electricity or gasoline from four-stroke engines. About 100m before reaching the dam, with better or worse views of it due to the quota in which the water plan is, a few meters below the road we discovered a mill in ruins, still with grindstones, bins, walls and traces of its work ended, crying for rehabilitation and whispering the magic of the site. I've never been so sure about a place and I won't even see about the surroundings as an argument for seduction, quite simply because paradise is there - What engaging? What access? - What libraries, gymnasiums, airports, shopping centers, cities, towns and pharmacies? Note: a barquito, canoe, duck, tube, something that floats or allows you to navigate, is indispensable. (ref:C0372-00556)
