Geocache Description:


A barragem Vilarinho das Furnas está localizada no concelho de Terras de Bouro e é alimentada pelo rio Homem. Foi inaugurada em 21 de Maio de 1972, com uma altura de 94 m, situa-se na bacia hidrográfica do rio Cávado. Foi, principalmente, com a CPE/EDP que se vulgarizou a designação Vilarinho das Furnas, quando deve ser Vilarinho da Furna.
