This dam, although off the beaten track, is worth a visit. Built in 1972, it is 92 meters high. The Cávado River forms a lake that submerged a village, whose ruined houses can be seen in periods of drought.

If you want a very quite and "private" lake area this is the place, away from the crowds and urban areas. Just be careful with the underwater remain stones (remains of a submerged village), but rather than that it is a lovely place for a nice sunbath.

It's an historical dam that flooded the Lindoso village in the 70s. You can still see some traces of some of the old buildings.
