Guadiana, River

   The Guadiana River is about 828 kilometers (515 miles) long in Spain and Portugal, one of the peninsula's longest rivers, along with the Tagus and Douro. It rises in south-central Spain, flows west to Portugal's border, turns south, and forms two sections of the frontier between Spain and Portugal. It then empties into the bay of Cadiz. Sections of the Guadiana form the border between the Algarve district and Spain.
