Museu do Rio (Museum of the River)

Situated 8 km south of Alcoutim, at a place called Guerreiros do Rio, this museum has recently been expanded.
Visitors to the museum can see an exhibition about the river Rio Guadiana and its history, its connection to mining through river transport, and the natural and cultural heritage connected to the river, such as the various types of traditional fishing and the smuggling that went on during the time of the New State.
There is also an opportunity to enjoy an exhibition of Traditional Fishing Boats of the Lower Guadiana, comprising replicas of the boats that used to travel that part of the river.
