The Alqueva water reservoir is the biggest artificial Lake of Western Europe and it’s located in the Portuguese region of Alentejo. Like most of the Portuguese countryside, the younger population of this territory is leaving and therefore the remaining population is decreasing and getting older.

In the area around the Alqueva water reservoir there are several little villages and small towns, although there are a significant amount of settlements they are not strong enough to create internal or regional dynamics.
