Camping Markadia Barragem De Odivelas Alvito Alentejo Walking The Lake 2
Portugal

Walking around the lake shore.

The Markádia Camping is a natural park in the middle of Alentejo owned by a lovely Dutch couple who carefully planned the park and cared to keep it preserved for many years.


The park is located in the Odivelas Dam near Alvito and last year, during the month of July, we spent there our weekends enjoying this great place. We had great fun and my kids loved it, of course we will return this year for another set of great weekend getaways. Spending great time like this with the family is priceless, this will be on our memories for a long time.

    wow...amazing pictures. I am dying to go there with hubby and the kids. An old acquaintance of mine used to go there with his wife and I think he worked there too on the park, around the campsite. He is from the UK and she is dutch...I think...in fact, she might even be related to the owners if they are dutch too! was there a nice café there?

    More About Europe

    Europe is generally agreed to be the birthplace of western culture, including such legendary innovations as the democratic nation-state, football and tomato sauce.The word Europe comes from the Greek goddess Europa, who was kidnapped by Zeus and plunked down on the island of Crete. Europa gradually changed from referring to mainland Greece until it extended finally to include Norway and Russia.Don't be confused that Europe is called a continent without looking like an island, the way the other continents do. It's okay. The Ural mountains have steadily been there to divide Europe from Asia for the last 250 million years. Russia technically inhabits "Eurasia".Europe is presently uniting into one political and economic zone with a common currency called the Euro. The European Union originated in 1993 and is now composed of 27 member states. Its headquarters is in Brussels, Belgium.Do not confuse the EU with the Council of Europe, which has 47 member states and dates to 1949. These two bodies share the same flag, national anthem, and mission of integrating Europe. The headquarters of the Council are located in Strasbourg, France, and it is most famous for its European Court of Human Rights. In spite of these two bodies, there is still no single Constitution or set of laws applying to all the countries of Europe. Debate rages over the role of the EU in regards to national sovereignty. As of January 2009, the Lisbon Treaty is the closest thing to a European Constitution, yet it has not been approved by all the EU states. Text by Steve Smith.
