The Platform Save the Tua wants to show the diversity and beauty of the Tua Valley. We know there are dozens of supporters that have pulled their cameras to embrace the wonderfulness of this region and we want to share this images with all those that have not still had the chance to witness it. How is your Tua?
The Platform Save the Tua organized a photography competition and offered a fabulous prize. All photographies taken had to be about the natural, cultural and architectural heritage of the Tua Valley, especially focusing on the Tua river, the Tua Railway Line and custom of the region.
The mission of Platform Save the Tua is to protect the Tua Valley by raising awareness about the inconsistencies of the Foz Tua dam, which is being constructed in one of the most beautiful rivers in Portugal, with the values abided by Unesco World Heritage nomination of the Alto Douro Wine Region. We demand for this construction to stop immediately before a natural heritage spot of a high ecological, social and economic value and part of our legacy and Portuguese identity and culture suffers irreversible damages.
