The Last Days of the Tua

The Last Days of the Tua

Despite all the efforts from Esporão and Save the Tua Platform, the reservoir has entered its final filling phase.

Few weeks are left so that hundreds of hectares are completely submerged and the region’s landscape forever changed.

While losing this part of Portugal, discontent gives way to reflection and solidarity towards local communities.

We thank the thousands of people who have joined this cause, have seen and shared the videos of the campaign and sent up to 23.000 letters to UNESCO, seeking the protection of the Alto Douro Wine Region and its historical scenic and natural heritage.

The strenght and mobilization invested in the defence of Tua’s Valley and Railway Line ought to be transformed into encouragement and hope, so that no more harmful and useless dams are built in our and other countries.

Thank you all.
