Portugal has 100 Year long history of Uranium Mining. Also Uranium of Portugal was used to make the first nuclear bombs. Now Portugal´s last big uranium deposite is situated close to Nisa, a beautiful village in the north of Alentejo.

They decided to prefer a sustainable production of local products like chease and olive oil than jobs in the uranium industry.
