When you look at it, you can imagine so many things such as the hole taking you in another dimension. But as much as you want to think creatively just like in the movies, the hole is actually a dam, which collects water from Ribeira das Naves and diverts it to the Bayou Lagoon Long.
Doesn’t it make you imagine things such as getting sucked in and transported to a different dimension?
Here's a photo of a frozen Covão dos Conchos.
This hydroelectric system was constructed in 1955. It has a height of 4.6 meters and has a circumference of 48 meters. The tunnel that collects the water is 1519 meters long.
