Once Upon a time!


The expression “once upon a time” could introduce the history of the village of Vilarinho das Furnas, which, since 1971, has been under the waters of the dam of the dam that took its name.
It is not easy to baptize historically the origin of the small village of Vilarinho das Furnas, which was stuck between the mountains of Gerês and Amarela, in the municipality of Terras de Bouro, due to the lack of documentation.
The village of Vilarinho das Furnas, now submerged, is one of the main tourist attractions of the Peneda Gerês National Park.
If the water level of the Homem river leaves, it is possible to see traces of granite houses, but this phenomenon usually only happens in periods of prolonged drought.
