Olhos d'Agua is a small town in Portugal. Olhos d'agua means 'eyes of the water'. At the beach of this town you can see a spring of fresh water. You can drink from this water (before it goes into the sea of course) and you can only see it when the sea is on low tide. These springs look a bit like eyes so that's why this little village is called Olhos d'Agua. Here you can see a video of 'the eyes of the water' https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w0qQHz57BUw
