Near the village there's a dam called Maranhão (the sign reads Barragem do Maranhão, Barragem is the Portuguese word for dam). It's a nice place to visit, it's green, very quiet and in summer it's fresh while everywhere else it's so hot. There are 2 places to visit in the dam: the belvedere (the one pictured on my photo) and also a nice open air café by the water (near the camping ground), where it is possible to put the boats on the water – actually I don’t know the English word for this, it is not a marina as the infrastructure is quite basic.
Herd of sheeps near Maranhao
This is the place right close to the bank of the water compound of the Maranhao barrage.
As you can see this is almost perfect for the sheeps to grow. Relaxed and enough space to be free. This place of the Maranhao barrge is a nice place to come in the summer and enjoy the nature.
