Located in the municipality of Castro Marim, in the Algarve, the Odeleite Dam was built in Ribeira de Odeleite, which is born in the Serra do Caldeirão and is a tributary of the Guadiana River.



An aerial photograph revealed that the dam's reservoir is shaped like a blue dragon, a symbol of power, strength and good fortune in Chinese culture, in addition to being a pattern traditionally used by emperors throughout history. This fact has attracted the attention of many visitors, who began to identify the place as the "Rio do Dragão Azul".



Next to the dam, the small village of Odeleite has as main points of interest the Mother Church built in 1534, some Roman archaeological remains and several water and windmills, characteristic of this area of ​​the Algarve. The natural heritage and the practice of outdoor activities, such as walking and cycling, boat trips and other water sports, are also good reasons to visit this region.
