  • I discovered this place, searching in maps things close to my hotel. Initially wouldn't know, but luckily left a while ago and couldn't go. The building itself is something unique, a + -120 years, ornate whole and planned to be a great storage and distributor of drinking water. Today it houses a Museum, on water management and how the structure was built, in addition to house the seat of the management company. Entry to the Museum is free.

  • Legend has it that the engineer who built the building, bringing parts from Europe, it took his life when at the end of the construction, was aware that one of the skylights of the symmetrical construction, was displaced from the place where it should be. It's wonderful

  • Worth a visit for the architecture, and to know how it was made the distribution of water in the city at the beginning of the last century. It also has a small museum.
