Presentation of Rebordelo

Rebordelo Commune is one of the 26 communes of Vinhais Municipality; it had 618 inhabitants in 2011 and covers 22.2 km². There are two communes in Portugal named Rebordelo - this one in Vinhais municipality and another in Amarante municipality. Why the name of the municipality was not added on the scroll befuddles me. Variants reading "REBORDELO - VINHAIS" are likely.
