Salto Grande Hydroelectric Dam, Concordia

4.0
#4 of 19 in Things to do in Concordia
Marvel at the modern technology and engineering of Salto Grande Hydroelectric Dam, a large dam that provides over 70 percent of Uruguay's energy and 10 percent of Argentina's. Built under the auspices of a historically important cooperation by the two nations, the dam straddles the Uruguay River between Salto and Concordia, and represents the first undertaking of its kind in Latin America. A guided tour from a knowledgeable docent gives insight into the structural ingenuities of engineering employed here, and as well as the dam's crucial role for both nations' infrastructures.

  • We went to the center of relations public where to leave the microphones that allow guided tours. Before a visit to the small theater where showed us a short of work. The journey is short and can be seen inside the Turbine Hall. An excellent guide answered all our questions with great kindness. Very good experience

  • Great scenery and views. A pity that it is not possible to stop there and observe everything without moving. It is very good to complement the visit covering both headers of the dam and see the Lake in its true dimension

Where to stay in Concordia

Most of Concordia's accommodations are in its southern neighborhood, where upscale hotels provide good rooms close to the river. The abundance of space just north of the main city has led to a number of resort-style hotels opening and expanding into the landscape, offering a range of facilities like private pools, onsite restaurants, and bars. Budget-conscious travelers are well catered for here, with plenty of hostels and rental apartments located in the main residential areas of the city.
