Carril Dam in the outskirts of the City of Tomar in Portugal

I visited Carril Water Dam with my wife, son and my sister-in-law, who was the one who took us there as I didn’t have a car during my time spend in Tomar in the summer/autumn of 2010. Carril Dam is about 10 minutes from the City of Tomar and was inaugurated in February of 2002 by the then Portuguese Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, Dr. Luís Capoulas Santos who is now a Member of the European Parliament for the Portuguese Socialist Party. In the waters of the Dam of Carril, which was built to irrigate the lands of about 300 farmers, you can also have a swim, you can fish and ride a canoe. Anyway I spent part of an afternoon there and took lots of photos which in time I will gradually post in this photoblog.

I wish I could walk this walkway at Carril Dam near Tomar, but there was a fence and a sign which prevented me to do that
