Terras de Bouro
Towns and Villages
Close by are the extremely beautiful reservoirs formed by the dams of Caniçada and Vilarinho das Furnas. When the latter lake was created, the village that gave it its name was completely submerged, and its remains are now exhibited at the Ethnographic Museum in Terras de Bouro.
In the surrounding region are the shrines of São Bento da Porta Aberta and Senhora da Abadia, which are both important centres of pilgrimage and the sites of regularly held religious festivities.
