Vilarinho da Furna (the villagers and those in the region called it Vilarinho da Furna, some historians and the dam builders used the plural form Vilarinho das Furnas) is a village that was submerged in 1972 by the filling of the reservoir with the same name. It is located on the River Homem up to Ribeira do Eido, in the municipality of Terras de Bouro in the Braga district, in the Minho region of northern Portugal. In a legal twist, the submerged land is still in the hands of the former villagers, but the use of the dam belongs to the Portuguese state. At times when the level of the reservoir falls, the village emerges; these occurrences often attract tourists.
